Lead by physics professor, Dr. Matt Wiesner, Benedictine University has been selected to participate in the U.S. Department of Energy’s $70 million grant program to support research by historically underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and to diversify leadership in the physical sciences.
RENEW-Midwest is a new partnership between Benedictine University, the University of Michigan and Black Hills State University to help students interested in astronomy and physics to complete a degree and be competitive for advanced study in physics and astronomy. Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science RENEW-HEP grant, Benedictine University is recruiting students interested in physics and astronomy to a multi-year research program at Benedictine and the University of Michigan. The RENEW-HEP grant is targeted to increase the participation of underrepresented minority students in physics and astronomy, however students from any background will be considered.
