The prize is based on the revenues from a donation by the late Josina Casimir-Jonker, wife of the famous Hendrik Casimir. The students are nominated by a committee formed by Jos Thijssen (director of Master Applied Physics Education Program Delft), Martin van Exter (Director of Education, Physics Leiden), Hara Papathanassiou (study advisor Physics program Leiden) and Luca Giomi (coordinator of the Casmir pre-PhD Master program).
