Merck/AAAS announce 2002 winners for Undergraduate Science Research Program

The Merck Company Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) today announced the recipients of the 2002 award for the Merck/AAAS Undergraduate Science Research Program.

The purpose of the program is to enhance undergraduate biology and chemistry education through undergraduate research experiences that emphasize the relationship between these scientific fields. It also seeks to encourage students to pursue graduate education in biology and chemistry. Each year, grants of $20,000 per year for up to three years are awarded to primarily undergraduate institutions for joint use by their biology and chemistry departments.

During the course of the award, Merck representatives will plan to visit award recipient institutions to meet with students to learn about their research and related interests, and to become familiar with the departmental facilities and faculty approaches to science education and training. In addition to supporting undergraduates' research efforts, the awards may provide funding for symposia, lecture series and workshops.

This year's winners are Allegheny College in Meadville, PA; Boise State University in Boise, ID; Colby College in Waterville, ME; Knox College in Galesburg, IL; Lawrence University in Appleton, WI; Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT; Millsaps College in Jackson, MS; Pomona College in Claremont, CA; Rhodes College in Memphis, TN; Ripon College in Ripon, WI; Trinity University in San Antonio, TX; University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA; University of San Diego in San Diego, CA; Uion College in Schenectady, NY; and Whittier College in Whittier, CA.

"This is the second year of the program as a national competition, and we've been very gratified to see the level of interest in it from schools around the country. The competition has also become an annual event, which means that it is providing far more opportunities for students to participate in research," s
