NHS Student Research Fund Recipients

The College of Natural and Health Sciences (NHS) launched in spring 2006 a new UNC Foundation account entitled the NHS Student Research Fund, which is intended to support research and research-related travel by NHS students. The fund has been supported through generous donations by faculty, staff, and friends of the College, as well as proceeds generated by April 2006 NHS Student Research Celebration. This new Foundation account is still in the building stages; however, the College designated some funds in order to allow a funding competition in the current academic year. To make a donation to the Student Research Fund, please visit the UNC Foundation website at http://www.uncalumni.org/Foundation/.
