Award finalists present to Women for ATSUPosted: April 21, 2017
Each year, Women for ATSU provides funding to support University programs that benefit students and the community. In February, students and faculty were invited to submit their proposals for the 2017 award cycle. From 18 applications, six finalists were selected to present their proposals at Women for ATSU’s annual dinner.
Each of these innovative programs creates unique educational opportunities for students, while addressing significant community needs.
