Winners of GEAB Impact Award and Horizon Award announced

Each year, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Graduate School honors graduate students in programs throughout the University for their powerful discoveries that contribute to a better future for people and communities in North Carolina.

The longstanding GEAB Impact Award recognizes discoveries with a direct impact on our state in the present time. New for 2017, the Horizon Award recognizes discoveries with future potential to benefit North Carolina (and beyond).

Doctoral and master’s students, working in close collaboration with their faculty mentors, pursue promising new ideas. They then apply their new knowledge to improving human health, strengthening communities and creating greater understanding of our world’s biggest challenges. That innovation is something to celebrate.

Learn more about the 2017 Horizon and Impact Award winners and their projects on the UNC Graduate School website.
