43 undergrads win research awards

The Faculty Senate has selected 43 undergraduates to receive David A. Harrison III Awards for Undergraduate Research. The second- and third-year students will be recognized at a public ceremony Feb. 14 at 3 p.m. in the Rotunda Dome Room.

The students, who will receive up to $3,000 for their research projects, will work with faculty sponsors this semester and through the summer.

“This is the best way to develop the qualities of curiosity, creativity and independence that are so important for the undergraduates as they move into their careers,” said biology professor Robert Grainger, chair of the Faculty Senate. Ninety applications were submitted this year.
