Steward Earns ‘Visiting Scientists’ Grant

The Steward School recently earned a $50,000 matching challenge grant from The Edward E. Ford Foundation to fund a "Visiting Scientists Program" for the forthcoming Bryan Center for Science and Sustainability.

The program is designed to attract specialists with expertise in a wide range of disciplines including alternative energy, physics, hydrology, engineering, astronomy, sustainable architectural design and green construction methods and materials, organic gardening, natural resource management, geology, and environmental studies.
