Haslam Summer Scholars Research Awards Provide 16 Faculty with Funding

Now in its third year, the Haslam Summer Scholars Research Awards program has bestowed 16 faculty members with nearly $300,000 for high quality research in the Haslam College of Business.

“These awards recognize both past accomplishments and the promise of future intellectual contributions from our wonderful faculty,” said Charles Noble, associate dean for research and faculty and the Henry Professor for Business. “We are grateful for the generous contributions of donors who make this program possible as we continue to build Haslam. We congratulate all the winners of these grants and thank them for their excellent contributions to our success!”
