November 18, 2005Dr. Kathleen Fischer was awarded an additional $42,135 through Norfolk State University originally funded by the National Science Foundation for her REU: Site Collaborative Research Experience project. This proposed program, which is a joint effort of ECSU and Norfolk State University, has as it's primary goal the preparation of undergraduate students to successfully compete for entrance into graduate programs leading to the PH.D. The specific goals for the program are: to establish a REU program between NSU and ECSU; to increase the number of students applying to doctoral programs; to increase the number of minority students exposed to environmental research; and to establish a Joint Environmental Science Research Careers Center (ESRCC) at both universities.
