Chemistry funds awarded to Jackson State University

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

U.S. Representative Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) announced on Friday that The National Science Foundation has awarded $999,995 to Jackson State University.

The funds will support JSU as it develops a research and educational program that will prepare chemistry undergraduate (RISE Scholars) and graduate students (RISE Fellows) to be globally competitive.

This will be accomplished by recruiting highly talented doctoral students with an interest in nanochemistry; providing faculty-led mentoring of interdisciplinary research activities for doctoral students; supporting leadership development activities for doctoral students; developing new courses toward a unique updated curriculum for the JSU chemistry doctoral program; upgrading the lab equipment to support the expansion of nanochemistry research; and generating collaborative-interdisciplinary research among faculty members and doctoral students who will present and publish presentations.
