2015 Summer Faculty Grant Awards

The first recipients of Hanley Research Grant awards were selected from applications submitted by teams from across campus. The six teams funded include UDRI researchers, and faculty from the Schools of Business Administration, Engineering, and the College. The $150,000 distributed among the six teams represents less than 25% of the total requested and present a broad research agenda. The grants range from funding for a Clean Fuel Retrofit of a Gasoline‐Powered Campus Shuttle, A Proposed Framework for New Product Development through Upcycling, to the creation of a Documentary Project on Huffman Prairie.
