Hoeven: UND Receives Nearly $450K from NSF to Support Chemical Research

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $442,821 to the University of North Dakota (UND). The funds will be used to support research that will allow UND scientists to provide estimates of particle size distribution, which will benefit fields that depend on a detailed knowledge of aquatic particles such as biogeochemistry, biology and optics. The project will also provide for the training and support of graduate and undergraduate students as well as public educational outreach, including a special effort to reach Native Americans in North Dakota.

“North Dakota’s universities are known for their innovative research,” Hoeven said. “Today’s grant will support groundbreaking chemical research at UND that has applications across many scientific fields, while also allowing students to gain hands-on experience.”
