In keeping with its long history of supporting academic programming, the Paul & Maxine Frohring Foundation has awarded a $320,000 grant to the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station.
The grant includes $100,000 to endow the Field Station director’s position; $50,000 to fund a wetlands and ponds assessment; and over $110,000 earmarked for student research in the form of paid independent or faculty-led year-round research projects directly related to the curriculum.
The balance of the grant is slated to support the staffing necessary to manage the growth and expansion of the Field Station property.
Such generosity enables the unparalleled teaching and research opportunities for which Hiram is so well known. This grant will no doubt greatly contribute to the presence of Hiram College in the field of academia.
