Congratulations to Drs. Katie H. Costigan (PI, Geosciences) and Beth A.

NSF has awarded a grant of $287,986. This award starts July 1 , 2017 and ends June 30, 2020 and will bring 10 undergraduate students to UL for each of three summers to participate in research related to the watersheds and coastal ecosystems of southern Louisiana. This award fits nicely into the University and Departmental priorities related to coastal science, interdisciplinary studies, and undergraduate research.
