2022 RISE Awards support summer research by UofSC system faculty

The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to announce the 2022 recipients of the Research Initiative for Summer Engagement, or RISE program grant awards. This year, 33 faculty researchers from UofSC’s system campuses will receive RISE funding to support their summer research projects. The RISE Program is an internal funding initiative through which faculty members at UofSC’s system campuses have the opportunity to compete for funding to support research and scholarly projects conducted during the summer months. The funds are offered through the Office of the Vice President for Research, with generous support from the chancellors at the four-year system campuses, USC Aiken, USC Beaufort and USC Upstate. Congratulations to the 2022 class of RISE grant recipients.
