SCIF: the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund

Ant surveying is not free. We had to buy vials, rubbing alcohol, forceps, and various sorts of measuring equipment. SCIF generously funded these purchases with the hope that our ant survey may help our campus become more aware of its impact on the environment. We are deeply grateful for this. If you have a sustainability project in mind and are a student or faculty member at the University of Utah - check out their website for details on applying for funding.

RTG: the Research Training Group

In addition to SCIF funding, we also received generous support from the Research Training Group in mathematical biology, or RTG .
