UI student Nick Rolston and professor Jack Scudder reflect on how private giving supports their quest for discovery
UI Physics and Astronomy Professor Jack D. Scudder and UI Presidential Scholar Nick J. Rolston reflect on how private support helps make their research and discovery possible.

UI Presidential Scholar Nick J. Rolston's decision to attend the University of Iowa was inspired by a visit he had with professor Jack D. Scudder of the UI Physics and Astronomy Department as a high school junior.

Three years later, Rolston met with Scudder to discuss that initial encounter, the challenges and successes of scientific research, and the thrill of discovery. Learn more about For Iowa. Forever More: The Campaign for the University of Iowa, and watch the video on the UI Foundation website.
