Thanks to our generous donors, we invested $228,400 in K-State cancer research and education this semester! We awarded faculty $105,960 for innovative research projects and $28,000 for laboratory equipment, and we awarded graduate students $88,240 in summer stipends and $4,200 for travel to present their research at scientific meetings. The awardees are listed on our Faculty and Student Award Winner webpages.
In total this school year, we’ve awarded $466,600. (K-State news release)
This is money well-spent! Many awardees leverage our support into national funding and prestigious honors for their research, helping advance K-State to a top 50 public research university by 2025.
We were also pleased to recognize 50 undergraduate student researchers at our annual Cancer Research Awards Banquet on April 19. It was a fun and moving night, as we honored the students, their families and faculty mentors, and the donors that made the awards possible. A photo gallery of the banquet is on our website.
