Hanson-Thorell Family Research Award

Two Hanson-Thorell Family Research Awards are awarded each year to support two junior faculty members as they explore new avenues of research.

Designed to give junior faculty members a head start, the awards are supported in part by Board of Councilors Chair Shari Thorell and her husband Bob. The award originated with funding from Shari’s father and former Board of Councilors Chairman Al Hanson.
