Five Faculty Members Receive Grants
Five USC Sumter faculty members were recently awarded Research Initiative for Summer Engagement (RISE) grants. Dr. Mary Ellen Bellanca, Dr. Kajal Bose Ghoshroy, Dr. Hayes D. Hampton, Dr. Michele Reese and Dr. Park Bucker were recipients of the grants for their respective areas of expertise and will spend the summer performing research related to their field. The RISE program provides financial support to faculty members at senior and regional campuses for summer salary, research supplies, travel related to research and undergraduate student support. Faculty members can also use these funds to spend the summer collaborating with USC Columbia faculty members.
