Blanton Scholarship

Dr. Richard L. Blanton Endowment for Undergraduate Research

The former and current scholars of the TTU/HHMI Undergraduate Research Education Program and TTU faculty and administrators established an endowed scholarship in 2002 honoring Larry Blanton, long-time TTU/HHMI Program Director, for the purpose of awarding a $500-$1500 scholarship to current TTU/HHMI undergraduate scholars. All current scholars in good standing are eligible. All completed applications are reviewed by a volunteer awards committee of TTU/HHMI alumni scholars and program staff. The award is presented at the annual TTU/HHMI Research Celebration Scholar/Mentor Banquet.
