CEI has selected six research projects for its 2016-2017 Student Training & Exploration Grants. The institute made roughly $200,000 in awards this year.
These grants support student education at the University of Washington by providing scholars the freedom to explore novel, high-risk/high-reward research topics. The projects seed new collaborations in research and education that increase the prospects for future support from federal funding agencies and other large-scale collaborative grants. More information on the Student Training & Exploration Grant Program is available here.
