Research scientists/professors at Benedict College, Converse College, and Erskine College have been selected to participate in collaborative research projects funded by the NSF-supported GEAR CRP (Grants for Exploratory Academic Research Collaborative Research Program).
The GEAR CRP program is funding five (5) SC research teams, each for a one-year term and up to $60,000 per project. These teams are composed of a lead principal investigator at a SC research university and at least one co-principal investigator from a predominantly undergraduate institution. Two previous SCICU news releases have reported on related research funding, as follows:
- Benedict, Claflin, and Furman Faculty Researchers Receive EPSCoR/IDeA Funding, and
- Claflin and Furman Part of $20 Million NSF-Funded MADE In SC Initiative.
The four (4) SCICU professors participating in the GEAR CRP projects are as follows:
