Daniel Heintzelman ’21 has received a $250 stipend from North Carolina Colleges and Universities to support his research with mentor Anthony Rizzuto, assistant professor of chemistry.

Heintzelman was one of 12 students in the state to be awarded the stipend, which followed the State of North Carolina Undergraduate and Creativity Symposium. He presented his research titled “Kinetic Investigations of NOx Chemistry Pertaining to the Global Nitrogen Cycle” at the symposium, which was held virtually on Nov. 7 and included more than 400 students from colleges, universities and community colleges around the state.

The annual symposium showcases NC undergraduate student research and creative work and provides undergraduate scholars in all fields a forum to share the results of their work through posters, presentations, performances and works of art.

“We are pleased to reward the intellect and creativity demonstrated by these undergraduate students,” said NCICU President Hope Williams. “Each year we get to witness the passion and resourcefulness that could lead to game-changing research.”

North Carolina Independent Colleges & Universities (NCICU) supports, represents, and advocates for North Carolina independent higher education in the areas of state and federal public policy and on education issues with the other sectors of education in the state.
