New Pilot Project Program

In February, LPI announced a new program to fund innovative pilot projects in areas aligned with the Institute's mission. One-year grants in amounts up to $20,000 will be awarded competitively to principal investigators at Oregon State University, with successful projects to begin in summer 1997. These grants will foster promising, but preliminary research not funded by government agencies. Funding for pilot projects is provided by donors to LPI.

Linus Pauling Further Honored at OSU

A 1955 graduate of OSU, Peter Johnson, and his wife, Rosalie, have pledged a gift of $1.2 million to establish the Linus Pauling Chair in Chemical Engineering at OSU. Pauling earned a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from OSU in 1922. In addition to this new chair and the Linus Pauling Institute, the Pauling heritage at OSU includes the annual Linus Pauling Lecture Series in Chemistry; the annual Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Memorial Lecture for World Peace; and the Ava and Linus Pauling papers, a special collection in the Valley Library.
