1:27 p.m., June 4, 2013--The Plastino Scholars Program, established in 2007 by a generous gift from Dave Plastino, a 1978 graduate of the University of Delaware’s College of Arts and Sciences, awards grants to undergraduates for the opportunity to conduct research on a topic of their choosing. 

This summer’s Plastino Scholars will be traveling the world, and thanks to a partnership with UD social media, the entire UD community can follow along.
