Grant awarded to UW-L to promote scientific research

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse has been awarded a $127,877 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The NSF is an independent federal agency dedicated to scientific advancement, public health and national prosperity. It was created by Congress in 1950. The foundation is responsible for approximately 21 percent of all federally supported basic research conducted in U.S. colleges and universities.

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind said the grant will help researchers at UW-L.

“I strongly support these types of forward thinking investments in research that make Wisconsin a global leader in scientific innovation.” said Rep. Kind.

Kind is a former co-chair of The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation.

UW-L plans to use the grant to help students interested in optoelectronics and quantum technologies and give them hands on experience in these emerging fields of study.

A full description of the project in which the grant will be used for can be found here.
