Alabama State University just got a multimillion-dollar boost to its science and tech programs.
ASU has landed a five-year, $2.25 million grant to fund its research work, STEM education programs and emerging technology. It will be used to give undergraduate students an opportunity to gain multidisciplinary research knowledge and skills in bioengineering and nanobiotechnology.
The money comes from the National Science Foundation, through its Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate Program.
“The ultimate goal of the program is for Alabama State University to significantly contribute to the pool of underrepresented minority students representing the next generation of scientists in America’s STEM workforce,” ASU biology professor Komal Vig said in a release.
The grant will provide participating ASU students with stipends along with travel funds to present their research at scientific meetings and conferences.
