Date:2/16/2011

The Honorable Rush Holt, U.S. Representative for New Jersey's 12th Congressional District, has been chosen to receive the 2010 AAAS Philip Hauge Abelson Award in honor of his work as an advocate for investments in research and development as well as education to expand America's scientific workforce.

Specifically, the award selection committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) said that Rep. Holt "was selected on the basis of his strong and sustained support of science and engineering and their responsible use in addressing major societal concerns, both as a scientist and as a leading Member of Congress."

AAAS chief executive officer Alan I. Leshner, executive publisher of the journal Science said: "Rep. Holt is a recognized leader in Congress on science and technology issues and has been tireless in his efforts to convey to his fellow legislators and the general public a better understanding of what scientists and engineers do and how science and technology will contribute to national economic growth and security."

Rep. Holt, a Democrat, was elected in 1998 and has been reelected six times since then. He previously served as Assistant Director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, Princeton University's largest research facility and the largest center for energy research in New Jersey, from 1989 to 1998.

In 1970, Rep. Holt earned his B.A. in physics from Carleton College in Minnesota. He then earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in physics from New York University in 1981. From 1980 to 1988, Rep. Holt served as a faculty member at Swarthmore College where he taught classes in physics, religion, and public policy. He also worked as a AAAS Congressional Science Fellow for U.S. Representative Bob Edgar of Pennsylvania. Rep. Holt headed the Nuclear and Scientific Division of the Office of Strategic Forces at the U.S. Department of State from 1987 to 1989.

After his election, Rep. Holt joined Rep. Vernon Ehl
