UVM CEMS Spire - November 2011

Six 2011 Barrett Scholarship recipients met with Richard Barrett, '66 UVM alumnus and founder of the Barrett Foundation at a Scholarship Luncheon at UVM on October 14 to discuss their summer research discoveries and accomplishments. Richard Barrett was among many scholarship donors honored and invited to UVM to meet with students who had received scholarship funds from The Barrett Foundation created to support undergraduate student research activities.

Barrett created The Barrett Foundation as a family nonprofit because his own career was boosted by his early internship experience. His vision for research for undergraduate students is in its seventh year. Each project is approved and designed to fit within a general research area of an engineering faculty advisor.

Through CEMS faculty matching research funds, six student research projects were funded in 2011. continued
