Ph.D. student Tony Gill was just awarded a research grant from the Bet Haverim Seventh Grade class. Their class is learning about philanthropy, and they decided to pool part of their mitzvah gifts to fund a research project (what a great idea!). They put out a call for proposals, evaluated the applications, and made a funding decision. Tony prepared a proposal on the herring virus story, and it was awarded. Hats off to the Bet Haverim Seventh graders, and congrats to Tony!
