Two SHU Biology Students Receive Grants

Beta Beta Beta National Biology Honor Society Awards Are a First For Siena Program

For the first time, Siena Heights University students have received research grants from Beta Beta Beta, the national biology honor society.


Senior biology majors Brad Moran and Bob Nydza each recently learned that their grant proposals were accepted by Beta Beta Beta. Moran, from Morenci, earned a grant for his work in seed germination. Nydza, from Oberlin, Ohio, was noted for his ant survey of Lenawee County.


SHU Professor of Biology Carl Kaster said the grants are a first for the Siena program.
