LOS ANGELES —

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Arieh Warshel won more than just the Nobel Prize in chemistry on Wednesday: He earned a free parking spot for life at the university where he works.

The University of Southern California says that privilege goes to all Nobel laureates from the school. University President C.L. Max Nikias told Warshel he will get a reserved spot and receive a refund for the parking he paid for so far this year.

Warshel shared the $1.2 million honor with U.S.-based scientists Martin Karplus and Michael Levitt for developing powerful computer models that researchers use to understand chemical interactions.

Located south of downtown Los Angeles, USC has garnered four Nobel prizes in its history.
