Hoeven: NSF Awards More than $300,000 to North Dakota State Univesrity

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $325,571 to North Dakota State University (NDSU). The funds will support research aimed at developing an abundant, non-toxic material for color displays and solar cells in electronic devices. The team conducting the research will also participate as mentors in Nurturing American Tribal Undergraduate Research and Education (NATURE), a program that engages tribal high school and college students throughout North Dakota in engineering and science projects.

“Today’s award will support not only cutting-edge research at NDSU, but it will also help to engage tribal high school and college students throughout our state in science and engineering projects,” Hoeven said. “This will allow tribal students to further their education and, at the same time, prepare them for the jobs of the future.”
