The Dafni Amirsakis Fellowship Award was established to honor Dafni's life, music, and achievements, and to continue her life’s work by providing the opportunity for future graduate students to follow in her footsteps. An award of $1000 shall be given each year to a Chemistry graduate student who goes above and beyond all expectations in his/her research, teaching, and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students, and who has a great love of music. Other criteria include helping others and reaching out to the community while displaying the characteristics of kindness, generosity, determination, joyfulness, sweetness, and good humor—all traits that Dafni had in excess.
