Grant Program Funds Summer Travel Research for Three Niagara University Students

In Announcements, by , on June 5th, 2018

Nicholas Atallah plans to debate the chronology of the Cold War through information gathered in part from a summer trip to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. Sophia Smith will compare baby boomers to millennials on both sides of the Canadian-American border. Jacobe Wendell recently returned from a conference in Boston that will contribute to his analysis of the creation and implementation of artificial intelligence.

The Niagara University students are this year’s recipients of the Peggy & John Day Honors Thesis Travel Grant, which offers select undergraduates travel funding to enhance their Honors theses. Such research may consist of exploring historic locations or archives, attending applicable academic conferences and collecting data during the summer.

This is the second year that the grant has been available at Niagara University. It is part of a larger, generous gift to the university made by the Day family, the purpose of which is expanding Honors-level education.
