SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (AP) — A small liberal arts college in northwest Iowa has been awarded about $250,000 in grant money for research purposes.
Dordt College in Sioux Center will use the money from the National Science Foundation for undergraduate and high school summer research and learning.
It's part of a collaborative grant with Hope College in Michigan that's worth about $600,000.
Dordt College will host undergraduate students for eight to 10 weeks in the summer. The work will focus on the regulation of metabolic processes across a wide range of bacteria.
The grant money will also support opportunities for high school students to participate in an academic camp.
