Petar Hein Award
This award was originally established in 1982 by the faculty and staff of U of T Mississauga (formerly Erindale College) to recognize scholarship in Physics. In 1983, the award name was changed to honour a graduate student who had recently passed away. Petar Hein’s family generously donated to this award and the name was changed in memory of the former student.
It is awarded annually to a full-time UofT Mississauga student registered in a Specialist or Major program related to Physics, ideally to a 3rd year student. Students with financial need will be given preference.

It is awarded annually to a full-time student registered in a Physics program at UofT Mississauga, ideally to a 4th year student. Students with financial need will be given preference.
The Moore Award in Physics
This award was established in 2007 by G.W. Kent Moore, Professor of Physics and past Chair of the Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences. Professor Moore's research interests include high latitude climate dynamics, mountain meteorology and high-altitude physiology.
It is awarded annually to a student with the highest standing in 2nd, 3rd or 4th year in a Physics Specialist or Major program. Preference is normally given to a 2nd year student.
This award has been established in order to recognize outstanding performance in 1st year physics and to encourage continuing in a physics program. It consists of a boxed set of the famous Feynman Lectures (New Millennium Edition).
To be awarded yearly to a full-time UofT Mississauga student who has received the highest average mark for PHY146 and PHY147 and is otherwise in satisfactory academic standing.
