ARRA Funding in Action


Aid for Science Ed
Dr. Joseph Travis

Aid for Science Ed

Recognizing the dire need for better and more diverse instruction in science and math, the National Science Foundation will provide more than $725,000 to the FSU Noyce Scholarship Program.
The Noyce grant will provide 42 scholarships for students enrolled in FSU-Teach and 48 summer internships.

Archiving Earth's History
Dr. Sherwood Wise

Archiving Earth's History

A $2.5 million award from the National Science Foundation will go to principal investigator Sherwood Wise, professor of geological sciences. The funds will pay for significant improvements to services, equipment, and education and outreach programs of the 48-year-old Antarctic Marine Geology Research Facility.

A New Future for Forecasting
Dr. Phillip Sura

A New Future for Forecasting

The National Science Foundation has committed more than $360,000 to support the research of Phillip Sura, assistant professor of meteorology. Sura is working to map and analyze certain atmospheric variables, to deepen scientists' understanding of extreme weather events, and improve models for prediction.

Predicting El Niņo
Dr. Allan Clarke

Predicting El Niņo

Professor of oceanography Allan Clarke is set to receive $400,000 from the National Science Foundation to help fund his study of El Niņo and the Southern Oscillation - periodic changes in the tropical Pacific that affect weather around the world.

New Material for Electronics
Dr. Michael Shatruk

New Material for Electronics

With an infusion of more than $150,000 from the National Science Foundation, Michael Shatruk, assistant professor of chemistry, will study promising materials that could be incorporated into new types of electronic devices.

Science on Defense
Dr. Ronald Doel

Science on Defense

About two decades before the environmental movement gained political traction, there was another force driving climate change science. This influence, rooted in the Cold War era, is being researched by Ronald Doel, professor of history, with an infusion of nearly $500,000 from the National Science Foundation.

A Female Influence
Dr. Emily DuVal

A Female Influence

Biologists have long recognized that male traits-elaborate plumage and bright colors in birds, for example-can become extreme when females prefer mates with a certain type of appearance or behavior. Only recently have they acknowledged that females can and do change their preferences.
