Alaska Cardiovascular Research Foundation to fund pilot program for undergraduate research in health and wellness
by Kathleen McCoy |
The Alaska Cardiovascular Research Foundation has pledged $100,000 to the University Honors College to support the Faculty Leadership in Expanding Undergraduate Research (FLEUR) in health and wellness program. This contribution will fund a pilot program designed to incentivize faculty mentorship of undergraduate research and the integration of undergraduate research into health programs classes. FLEUR will significantly expand the number of students benefiting from the active learning and discovery found in the experience of doing original research at UAA.
