Support undergraduate research opportunities within the College of Natural Resources.

The College of Natural Resources has some of the best and brightest undergraduate students in higher education today. But for many of them to realize their dreams, they need an opportunity to get into professor’s laboratories or participate in their projects. But for some this is simply a dream and not a reality.

When I lost one of my former senior researchers to a tragic accident, his family and I chose to use the money given in his memory by friends and colleagues to establish the Shibo Zhang Endowed Fund for Undergraduate Research. This was a fitting tribute to someone who considered it a privilege to work with undergraduates during the completion of his research projects.
