The National Science Foundation has awarded a five-year $20 million Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-1 grant to the South Dakota Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (SD EPSCoR). The award will bolster South Dakota’s academic research infrastructure, improve education opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and drive economic and workforce development. SD EPSCoR Project Director Jim Rice says research in STEM-related fields is important for three reasons. “First, the research that takes place in state universities generates new ideas,” said Rice. “Second, because these ideas are critical to our future well-being, they are competitive for federal grants that…
