UAF captures $9 million to develop more research funding

A $9 million federal grant will help the University of Alaska study changes in the Arctic. The funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is going to the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program in Fairbanks. Project director and UAF professor Peter Schweitzer says the money will go toward making the University of Alaska more competitive for research funding.
