Center for Science, Technology, and Society Announces 2010 Roelandts Fellows

On November 15th, the Center for Science, Technology, and Society announced their 2010 Roelandts Fellows grants awardees. The grant program provides nearly $50,000 of support for Santa Clara University projects focused on the study and implementation of science and technology for social benefit.  Twenty-two faculty members and student teams will use their Roelandts Fellows grant awards for projects as diverse as studying the impact of solar LED lighting on student learning in rural areas, engineering solar water purifiers, and on developing a mobile application to support fair trade in developing countries.


This grant program was made possible by a generous gift from Willem P. Roelandts and Maria Constantino-Roelandts.  The Roelandts are long-time friends of the University. Maria is a member of the Santa Clara University Board of Fellows and Wim received an honorary doctorate from Santa Clara University in 2004.  We thank the Roelandts for their generous ongoing support of the University's mission.
