#Not For Ourselves, But For Others
The NSF RISE award is a research infrastructure award targeted at building innovative research opportunities for graduate students. The NSF-RISE award means having the opportunity to establish at Florida A&M a research program in dimensional printing, one of the most promising technologies of the future, while at the same time developing a system to recruit and train underrepresented students to conduct that research and enter doctoral programs in science and engineering.
“The NSF-RISE award provides us a great attractor to encourage students at FAMU to follow interesting careers being offered in Engineering involving the application of advanced manufacturing,” added Dickens.
