The University of Arkansas's Honors College will be awarding approximately $80,000 in grants to members of the university's faculty for the promotion of undergraduate research and honors researchers that are working on numerous disciplines, ranging from animal science to anthropology to biomedical engineering.

The money given as part of the grants will go toward the purchase of materials, including three-dimensional imaging technology and a virtual anthropology workstation that will give student researchers the opportunity to analyze skeletal shapes.

"In large part due to the stellar mentorship of honors professors, our undergraduate researchers are already getting published in top journals," Associate Dean of the Honors College Jennie Popp said. "I'm excited to see these grants give students and faculty even better access to the equipment they need to make a transformational difference."

The Faculty Equipment and Technology Grants are made possible, in part, by the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation, which donated a $300 million gift in 2002. The purpose of the grants is to help clinical, tenured and tenure-track faculty purchase specialized equipment or technology to support, advance and promote research.

The full list of awardees can be found on the university's website.
