McNair Scholars Selected for External Research Programs

Three McNair Scholars, Kate Angulski, David Hutchinson and Alexis Morris have all been accepted to participate in external research programs.

Angulski, a justice systems major, is one of only four students selected nationwide to participate in the criminal justice track of “Using the Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Mathematics to Study Crime.” This eight-week Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is supported by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. As part of the REU, Angulski will receive room, board, travel and a $3,600 stipend. 

Hutchinson, a history major, will conduct research at Washington University in St. Louis through a Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP). As part of the 10-week program, Hutchinson will receive room, board and a $3,000 stipend.

Morris, a chemistry major, will be a fellow in the CRISP REU Fellowship Program at Yale University, a NSF grant supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Center program. As part of the eight-week REU, Morris will receive room, board and travel as well as a stipend.
