2008 Community Based Undergraduate Research Grant Recipients
The Office of Community Partnerships and the Center for Undergraduate Excellence are pleased to announce the 2008 recipients of the Community Based Undergraduate Research Grants. Launched in spring 2008, the grants are designed to support student projects that seek to connect public service to academic life through research.
