The Academic Careers in Engineering & Science program (ACES+) recently announced recipients of the 2010 ADVANCE Opportunity Awards. Fourteen proposals representing academic disciplines ranging from engineering to religious studies to sociology received $41,667.
"We're thrilled to have the support of President Barbara R. Snyder and Provost Bud Baeslack to continue these awards," said Lynn Singer, deputy provost and vice president for academic programs. ADVANCE Opportunity Awards also receive funding through the National Science Foundation ADVANCE program.
