CHS grad earns summer research grant

Sierra Hollar, recent Camas High School magnet program graduate, was awarded a $2,000 summer research grant by Boise State University and its STEM Summer Research Community.

The program hosts several activities in partnership with student research programs to expose the participants to interdisciplinary learning and research opportunities. The award is given to one student per semester.

From her winning proposal that was peer reviewed by a scholar in Germany: “I wish to engage in the study of a novel group of symbiotic organisms, trichomycetes, in order to develop skills and expertise that will offer a contribution to the larger scientific community. This research could potentially yield new discoveries of both different microorganisms and candidate hosts, as well as give insight into habitats, traditional methods to preserve, and even prospective ways in which to harness, cultivate, and observe them in detail.”
