LORD Corporation to Establish NC State University Summer Research Fellowship

Published May 20, 2014
LORD Corporation has partnered with the North Carolina State University Department of Chemistry to establish the first LORD Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship. The new award is tied to a semester-long research project in which teams of students use primary literature sources to investigate a topic selected by NC State chemistry faculty and LORD scientists.

The partnership presents a unique opportunity to expand students’ understanding of fundamental chemistry and its industrial relevance. At the end of the semester, student teams will deliver a presentation on their findings to a panel of LORD scientists, NC State faculty and graduate students. The LORD Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship will fund one undergraduate student, who will be selected for his or her excellence in researching and presenting their topic. These funds will provide support for 10 weeks of summer research with a faculty member in NC State’s Department of Chemistry.

“We are excited to be partnering with LORD,” said Dr. Chris Gorman, professor and chair of the Department of Chemistry at NC State. “Our collective goal is to encourage interaction between undergraduate students and industrial partners, as well as sharpen students’ communication skills.”

Lane Miller, vice president of global technology at LORD, is excited about the new program. “We believe this is a wonderful way to build relationships with our local universities and help mold future technologists. We look forward to participating in this fellowship for many years to come.”
