Foundation Grant
Keck Science and 5Cs
The Claremont Colleges have been awarded $3.6 million from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) to support efforts that prepare undergraduates to become leaders in science research and medicine. The five undergraduate colleges (5C)—Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona and Scripps—submitted a joint proposal to the 2012 HHMI Colleges Initiative outlining a plan to instill quantitative and computational approaches in their life science courses and increasing the persistence of all students in the sciences. Of the 182 proposals received by HHMI, only 43 were funded. For the full press release, visit any of the 5C media pages, as listed in the Keck Science News and Updates section under "Recent Media Coverage."
