Twenty-four UTSA faculty members receive research awards

(May 31, 2005)--Twenty-four University of Texas at San Antonio faculty members received grants through the institution's Faculty Research Awards Program for 2005. The 24 recipients were chosen from 64 submitted proposals.

This year's recipients consist of 20 in the assistant professor category and four in the associate professor/professor category. The recipients represent the College of Engineering, College of Sciences, College of Liberal and Fine Arts, College of Eeducation and Human Development, and the School of Architecture.

A committee comprised of a member from each of the six colleges and the School of Architecture determines the recipients of the awards. UTSA initiated the Faculty Research Awards Program more than 14 years ago to promote research and scholarship among full-time, tenure-track faculty.
