Science Education Funding

Published July 2003

The UC College of Medicine was recently awarded a grant of $337,768 from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) to support their science education programs.

UC was one of 19 institutions selected for the prestigious grant from a pool of 115 applicants. The funding will support the ExSEL (Excellence in Science Education and Learning) program, Saturday Science Academy, and Teachers' Initiative program.

These three programs are integral components of more than 25 pipeline programs offered at UC's College of Medicine, where more than 1,000 students, teachers, family members and members of the Cincinnati community participate in on-campus activities each year.

"We're happy to have it," said Bobbie Handwerger, director of Recruitment Programming for the UC College of Medicine. "It enables us to provide science programs to students and teachers in the Cincinnati area. It encourages students to consider careers in science."
