SCSU, Yale get $13M science center grant

Southern Connecticut State University and Yale University say they will use a six-year, $13 million grant to expand cutting-edge scientific research and bolster educational opportunities for students and faculty in the New Haven Public Schools.

The National Science Foundation announced the grant to enhance the schools' joint materials science center known as the Center for Research on Interface Structures and Phenomena (CRISP).

Six years ago, NSF awarded $7.5 million to create the center, of which SCSU received $1,484,000. The new award will enable the schools to build upon the accomplishments of the last six years. SCSU will receive $1,763,000 - one of the largest grants ever awarded to the university and the largest research grant.

On Friday, SCSU will host a celebration of the sciences program at 1 p.m. in the lobby of SCSU's Lyman Center for the Performing Arts.
