Incentives & Awards Committee

The Incentives & Awards Committee oversees decisions on funding and supervision of all awards within the K-INBRE. The Committee is composed of experienced scientists from both Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs) and non-PUIs. The committee composition provides broad, unbiased experience in numerous scientific disciplines that are represented by faculty researchers in the state of Kansas. All grant review assignments are made to avoid conflicts of interest among the various institutions.
