The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Texas A&M University-Commerce 

Dr. Bao-An Li, a Regents Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, was awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation for his project titled "Physics and Astronomy Scholarships for Success (PASS)".  Drs. Cheri Davis and Matt Wood are Co-PIs on the project.  The grant, in the amount of $570,782.00, will allow Texas A&M University-Commerce to provide at least 45 scholarships over 5 years to students with a Physics major who have demonstrated a financial need and academic ability.

Dr. Li wants everyone to know, "To make the PASS project a complete success we need strong support of the whole faculty in the department as well as the university administration."
