Birmingham-Southern professor awarded Merck, AAAS grant for undergraduate research

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The Merck Company Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science have awarded a three-year grant of up to $60,000 to Dr. David Schedler, Birmingham-Southern College associate professor of chemistry, to fund student research and related activities in the college's biology and chemistry departments.

The award is from the 2003 Merck/AAAS Undergraduate Science Research Program. The program's objectives are to encourage graduate education in biology and chemistry through undergraduate research experiences that foster an understanding of the interrelatedness of the two sciences. The award provides for opportunities that encourage and reinforce collaboration among faculty mentors.

Joining the BSC faculty in 1994, Schedler received his bachelor's degree from Rhodes College, his doctoral degree from the University of Alabama, and did post-doctoral research at Cornell University.
