$20k Challenge Grant launched

Money will be used to fund undergraduate research

Yvonne and Milt Datta know the value undergraduate research has on education. Both are university professors and have fond memories of their time in college. For Yvonne, that was at UW-La Crosse.

They’re putting up $20,000 dollars as a challenge grant for the university. They’ll match every dollar through the first $20,000.

“Undergraduate research gives students the real world experience for what they’re learning the classroom,” says Yvonne, ’82. “They have to apply what they know, try to make it work and suffer some failures and setbacks to see the true value of what they’re learning.”
