Spelman College received $10,000 toward student scholarships from the Georgia Space Grant Consortium (GSGC). Under the direction of Dr. Leyte Winfield, Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry, Chair of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Interim Associate Provost of Research, the goal of this award entitled, LINCS Scholarships, is to promote the retention and professional development of two students majoring in physical science or mathematics who are currently engaged in research relevant to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Students will be selected from a pool of those currently engaged in the LINCS (Living and Learning in an Interdisciplinary Networked Community of STEM Scholars). Scholars engaged in this program represent high achieving STEM majors who have an expressed interest in pursuing a STEM PhD or MD/PhD degree.

On Monday, July 25, NSF will implement a more convenient and secure process for resetting passwords. NSF awardees and applicants will no longer need to reach out to the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) to reset their passwords; instead, you can reset your own password. To do this, go to www.research.gov and click “Log In,” then “Forgot Password.” After entering your NSF ID and clicking, “Send Temporary Password,” you will be able to reset your passwords using the temporary password sent to your email address on file.
Passwords must be between 8 and 20 characters and use three of the four categories below:
- Upper-case letter
- Lower-case letter
- One of these special characters # & % ! @ ( )
In addition, the last six passwords cannot be reused, and accounts will be locked for five minutes after the tenth unsuccessful password attempt.
To learn more about Research.gov/FastLane password modernization, including accessing a getting started guide and FAQs, please click here.
You can also find helpful Research.gov information by either clicking Help in the top right-hand corner of Research.gov or clicking the FastLane Help in the top right-hand corner of the FastLane homepage. We encourage you to review this information to learn how to efficiently use the site.
For additional assistance, please contact the NSF Help Desk at 1-800-381-1532 or Rgov@nsf.gov.
Dr. Peter Chen, Professor of Chemistry has been awarded a four-year grant from the National Science Foundation’s Chemical Measurement and Imaging (CMI) Program in the amount of $319,451. His project entitled “High Resolution Coherent 3D Spectroscopy” will allow his research group to further develop High Resolution Coherent Three Dimensional (HRC3D) spectroscopy while examining problematic molecules with spectra where pattern recognition has been difficult or impossible using conventional spectroscopy. The main goal of Dr. Chen’s research work is to design, demonstrate, develop and explore the capabilities of new high resolution coherent multidimensional spectroscopic techniques for overcoming problems that have long plagued the field of high resolution molecular spectroscopy.
