Wesley College undergraduate receives NASA-Delaware Space Grant Consortium (DESGC) Tuition Scholarship
Rising sophomore Aaron Givens (B.S. Biology), was competitively selected to receive one of just eight AY 2010-2011 NASA-DESGC $3,000 Undergraduate Tuition Scholarships. This award requires the recipient to complete an undergraduate research project that is within the confines of the NASA Mission Directorates. Each undergraduate will be presented with a certificate recognizing their success in obtaining this cash award, and each student is expected to present their research outcomes as a poster at the annual Fall symposium of the Delaware Space Grant Consortium. Aaron chose to complete a research project under the direction of Dr. Malcolm J. D'Souza, Professor of Chemistry, that seeks to build a database containing a variety of useful parameters of the fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides used in the State of Delaware.
