PSE ~ Awarded 3-year GAANN Funding

The U.S. Department of Education has recently awarded the Polymer Science and Engineering Department a three year Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) grant totaling $950,000.  The funds will be used by PSE to continue the Department's pioneering working in STEM education. 

The Objectives of this GAANN are:

1)  to educate exceptional doctoral students in polymer research and teaching methods
2)  to recruit women and underrepresented minority (URM) group members in greater numbers
3)  to expand a departmental culture that retains talented doctoral students, especially women and those from URM backgrounds.
