Texas Tech Receives $1.1 Million Renewal Grant to Encourage Science Education

The National Institutes of Health recently renewed its $1.1 million grant to continue Texas Tech University’s Plains Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program with South Plains College.

Program director Jaclyn Cañas-Carrell announced the renewed five-year grant. The program partners with educators and minority science students at South Plains College to help those students transfer successfully from the college to Texas Tech.

Others involved in securing the renewal include Texas Tech faculty and administration members Kamaleshwar Singh, Juan Muñoz, Patrick Hughes and Zenaida Aguirre-Muñoz, and Jay Driver and Leanna Smith at South Plains College.
