Welcome to Sigma Xi - Kansas State University Chapter
Sigma Xi was founded in 1886 to honor excellence in scientific investigation and encourage a sense of companionship and cooperation among researchers in all fields of science and engineering. The Greek letters "sigma" and "xi" form the acronym of the Society's motto, "Spoudon Xynones," which translates as "Companions in Zealous Research."
Registration for the Sigma Xi annual meeting is now open. The meeting will be from October 22 - 25 and will be held at Kansas City's Crown Center. It will never be closer. Plan now to attend. Follow the link for details.

Galliart awarded National Sigma Xi Grants-in-Aid of Research
Matthew Galliart is the recipient of a Sigma Xi Grant-in-Aid of Research grant. Sigma Xi awarded Galliart a $1,000 grant in support of his research proposal, "Experimental natural selection of big bluestem ecotypes across the Great Plains: A novel test for the strength of local adaptation."
The Sigma Xi Grant-in-Aid of Research program has a highly competitive application process and only approximately 15 percent of all applicants receive any level of funding. Sigma Xi is the national scientific research society.
Galliart, is a graduate student in the Division of Biology working in ecological genomics in the lab of Loretta Johnson.
