Seventeen applications were received for these research grants; NDSU EPSCoR funded one.

Four Leap lab renovation grants were awarded to Svetlana Kilina and Erika Offerdahl, assistant professors of chemistry; Senay Simsek, assistant professor of plant sciences; and Kim Vonnahme, associate professor of animal sciences. Seven applications were received. NDSU/EPSCoR funded the lab renovation grants; the award to Simsek was co-funded with the Agricultural Experiment Station.

Applications for both grants were reviewed externally prior to the award decisions.
