CEHS researchers earn Layman Awards
28 Jun 2021
Several researchers in the College of Education and Human Sciences at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln have earned Layman Awards to support research projects from Aug. 1, 2021 – July 31, 2022.
The Layman Awards provide funding for projects that will enhance the grantee’s ability to obtain external funding to support prominent scholarly work. Awards of up to $10,000 per application for each program are made possible by support from the University of Nebraska Foundation.
“Layman Awards provide both the institutional commitment and financial support to faculty as they launch their research careers or venture into new research directions,” said CEHS Associate Dean for Research and Creative Activity, Susan Sheridan. “They can be pivotal in positioning investigators for future extramural funding. We are very proud of all of the CEHS researchers who were awarded Layman grants this year, and optimistic about their ability to leverage these grants in the near future.”
