ANS Awards Mini-grants to Faculty and Students
Every year the College of Applied and Natural Sciences awards mini-grants to faculty and students to support research. This year the College awarded $9,626.56 to students and faculty in the School of Biological Sciences. This included $4,472.56 to undergraduates working in research labs, $2,941.00 to graduate students completing thesis projects, and $2,213.00 to faculty to support research. This year grant awards ranged from $270-$1,000, to support the purchase of reagents and supplies that will advance research in the School of Biological Sciences and are often awarded to labs that are in the earlier stages of developing research programs. The labs that benefited from the awards this year were Dr. Natalie Clay, Dr. Jennifer Hill, Dr. Patrick Hindmarsh, Dr. Jamie Newman, and Dr. Don Shepard. Grant recipients will present their research in oral or poster presentations at the annual ANS Day and Research Symposium held by the College this year on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
