Husker undergrads receive stipends for fall research projects

Tuesday, November 8, 2022

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln has awarded stipends to 202 Husker undergraduates to participate in research with a faculty mentor this fall. Two plant and landscape systems majors William Anderson and Mason Rutgers have been awarded UCARE stipends.

Nebraska’s Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research Experience (UCARE) Program supports undergraduates to work with faculty mentors in research or creative activities.

Students with academic-year UCARE awards will present posters on their research and creative activities at Student Research Days, to be held during the spring semester.

Anderson, a sophomore from Gothenburg, Nebraska, will present “Diversifying Nebraska Agriculture and Education through Breeding Sweet Corn and Popcorn with Novel Nutritional, Taste and Aesthetic Characteristics.”

Rutgers, a junior from Ferndale, Washington, will present “Modification of the Loss-on-Ignition Method to Improve Predictions of Organic Matter in Soils Containing Minerals Derived from Volcanic Ash.”
