Even a Little Makes a Difference

First Two Recipients

Amanda Tan, Boston University

I am highly intrigued by the relationship between scientific research and administration, and how it advances our nation’s research enterprise. I look forward to growing as a research administrator with NCURA’s community.

Syliva Bradshaw, Dixie State University

NCURA has given me an ever-expanding network of professionals who I want to emulate by both their extensive knowledge and service rendered. I truly do hope to “pay it forward” as so many others have done for me.
