NSF Awards Canisius $1 Million Grant

BUFFALO, NY - Canisius College is the recipient of a five-year, $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grant will be used to support the Canisius Science Scholars program, which provides financial, academic and social support to students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). 

“Canisius has a tradition of offering a high-quality education to students in the natural sciences,” says Andrew Stewart, PhD, assistant professor of biology and principal investigator (PI) on the grant. “This NSF grant will help ensure that tradition continues by providing the support necessary to help academically-gifted, financially-disadvantaged undergraduate science majors make the transition from science students to scientists.”

The Science Scholars program will support traditional four-year undergraduate students, as well as those who transfer to Canisius after completing two-year degrees at community colleges.
