Pomona College a Top Recipient of RCSA Science Research Grants

The Research Corporation for Science Advancement, a foundation devoted to science, recently announced the top 10 liberal arts colleges in the United States that have received the most research grants from the foundation in its 100-year history. Pomona College is on the list with 50 grants total. In a Huffington Post article, RCSA President James M. Gentile says "the colleges on the list have...demonstrated ongoing leadership in creating environments in which science education and access to undergraduate research opportunities are closely intertwined.... Hands-on research opportunities for undergraduates combined with personalized attention from inventive professors is one of the reasons that liberal arts colleges have long played a disproportionately large role in the education of our nation's future scientists."
