Thomas Schwarz, S.J., Associate Professor of Computer Engineering, was given a Microsoft Research Grant for his Encrypted Scalable Distributed Data Structures (SDDS) research proposal. There was so much enthusiasm forthe proposal, that even though he did not rank high enough to receive full funding, Microsoft created a "micro-grant" of $5,000 as an unrestricted gift to do research on this topic.
