Six NDSU women faculty have been awarded NDSU FORWARD course releases for the 2013-14 academic year. Five recipients will have course releases for fall 2013, including Julia Bowsher, assistant professor of biological sciences; Rajani Ganesh Pillai, assistant professor of management and marketing; Erika Offerdahl, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry; Deirdre Prischmann, assistant professor of entomology; and Yechun Wang, assistant professor of mechanical engineering.

The National Science Foundation funded ADVANCE FORWARD project provides support for annual course releases. Priority for course release awards is given to assistant professors who have completed their third-year review and associate professors within two years of promotion to full professor. Future application opportunities for the course release grant program will be announced in Its Happening at State and on the FORWARD webpage at www.ndsu.edu/forward.
