Correction: 2015 Aspire Junior Faculty Awardees Announced

Contributed by: Jessie Roark
Published: Friday, 17 April 2015 5:30 PM
In the previous email Qiannong Gu's project title was incorrectly listed as "Social impacts of an action sports-for-development project on Native Americans." The correct title of the project is "A strategic analysis of information sharing in global supply chain management." The change has been reflected in body of the message. We apologize for this error.


The Sponsored Projects Administration is pleased to announce the 2015 Junior Faculty Aspire program awardees. With competitions in research and creative arts the Aspire Junior Faculty Program is available to faculty members in their first five years of a tenure-track appointment. The purpose of this program is to provide seed funding for research and projects that will lead to further support from external sponsors and funding agencies. This year thirteen proposals were funded through the program: two in creative arts and eleven in research.
