Yvonne Nyavor and Dr. Dave Pfeiffer Receive VIP Grant

Yvonne Nyavor, a graduate student in biological sciences, along with Dr. Dave Pfeiffer, a faculty member are  recipients of one of the Vandal Ideas Project (VIP): Engage grants. Their proposal entitled UIdahoX: Changing Idaho’s Perceptions about College to Increase Go-on Rates was awarded $60,000. Utilizing the popular TED talk format, grade six to 12 students with the best ideas will be brought to a university center for coaching, peer mentoring and research activities, and to compete for a college scholarship and TEDxUIdaho talk. The goal is to change the narrative of college education from “job-readiness” to “life-readiness.”
