Alex McNeil Wins Summer Research Award

Congratulations to P&G major Alex McNeil, who won a university summer research grant of $3250 for his project, "Fifty Shades of Green: A Comparative Study of Alternative Energy Policies in the United States."  Alex plans to examine states' efforts to cultivate wind, solar, and hydroelectric power with an eye toward assessing the efficacy of different approaches.

It has been a good couple of weeks for Alex.  In addition to this award, he recently won a social sciences writing prize for a paper on political parties and polarization he wrote in Professor Sousa's P&G 312, "Parties, Campaigns, and Elections."
