Summer research program wins support

The Sherman Fairchild Foundation has granted Reed $202,500 to use over three years to expand its undergraduate summer research program in the sciences. The fund—with a goal of teaching research skills in a mutually supportive science culture—will be used to add 15 student research positions each summer with faculty members in biology, chemistry, physics, and neuroscience. The primary beneficiaries of the expanded program will be physics and neuroscience, areas in which the departments would like to enhance the student research culture. End of Article
