K-State entomology student Shelly Wiggam, doctoral student mentored by Greg Zolnerowich and Brian McCornack, was awarded one of five J.E. Weaver research grants by the Nature Conservancy.

The top five grants were selected from a national, competitive pool of applicants seeking support for research in biodiversity and conservation. The grants are administered by the Nature Conservancy through its Nebraska Chapter's J.E. Weaver Competitive Grants Program and each grant is for $1,000.
