KU received a $552,000 grant last month from the National Science Foundation. The grant provides tuition scholarships for sophomores and juniors with an interest in studying renewable energy. The students must be majoring in science, technology, engineering or math - the so-called STEM disciplines - and satisfy other requirements. Selected students will receive a $10,000 annual scholarship, starting this fall and renewable for up to three years. Working closely with Distinguished Professor of Physics and Astronomy Judy Wu on the renewable energy scholarships grant are core faculty members Val Smith, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology; Susan Stagg-Williams, associate professor of chemical and petroleum engineering; Cindy Berrie, associate professor of chemistry; Barbara Anthony-Twarog, professor of physics and astronomy; and Lucas Miller, a mathematics instructor at Haskell.
