A National Science Foundation Grant for $750,000 was recently awarded to professors Arshia Khan (Computer Science) and Anne Hinderliter (Chemistry and Biochemistry), both from UMD, and Sherri Turner (Educational Psychology) from UMTC for "Networking and Computing: Scholarships and Support for Computing Students."
