II.    NOTICE OF GRANT AWARDS

       The following grants have been awarded to Southeastern Oklahoma State University:

        Evaluation of Centaurea as a Biodiesel Oilseed ....................................$12.500.00

        This grant was awarded to Southeastern Oklahoma State University from the Oklahoma
        Center for the Advancement of Science & Technology (OCAST) in the amount of
        $12,500.00 for the second of two years of the project. The effective date of the grant is
        May 1, 2009. The Project Director is Dr. Nancy Paiva, Professor of Chemistry,
        Computer, and Physical Sciences. Cen/aurea americana is a native wildflower adapted
        to Oklahoma and the central U.S. Initial analysis of seed oils indicated that the fatty
        acid composition is very similar to expensive soybean oil, a preferred starting material
        for production of biodiesel fuel. One main project aim is to assess the potential of
        Centaurea as a biodiesel-specific oilseed crop by evaluating oil yields and quality under
        field conditions. Another goal is to collect and evaluate wild germplasm from several
        locations. Other seed components will also be evaluated for commercial uses. Dr.
        Nancy Paiva, PI, will lead the research project. The funds will provide wages for
         undergraduate researchers assisting on the project, supplies for analyzing plant
         material, and travel cost reimbursement during seed collection trips. Dr. Paiva will also
         consult with agronomy experts at OSU (Stillwater) and U.S.DA (Durant and Lane) on
         some field evaluation and harvesting aspects, and with biodiesel manufacturers (Durant
         Biodiesel) on some quality aspects. Three undergraduates are working part-time on the
         project during Summer 2009, and others will assist with planting, plot maintenance and
         seed oil evaluations during winter months. A long term goal is to collect preliminary
         data to apply for a larger federal grant on this topic.

         Summer Symposium in Real Analysis ............................................. $11,150.00

         This grant was awarded to Southeastern Oklahoma State University from the National
         Science Foundation in the amount of $11,150. The effective date of the grant is March
         1, 2009.       This grant's principal investigator is Dr. Patrick Reardon, Professor of
         Mathematics. The purpose of this grant is to introduce young mathematicians to the
         field, as well as, to provide a forum for presentation of the current state of the art of the
         theory. The organizers intend to actively involve young mathematicians, female
         mathematicians, and mathematicians from other under-represented groups, to which

         much of the funding will be directed, Graduate students are expected to participate at
         the meeting. Approximately 35 mathematicians are expected to participate in the
         Symposium.

         Native American Excellence in Education ........................................$304.341.00

         This grant was awarded to Southeastem Oklahoma State University from the U.S.
         Department of Education in the amount of $304,341. The effective date of the grant is
         July 1, 2009. The Project Director is Mr. Chris Wesberry, Academic Advising and
         Outreach Center. The purpose of this grant is to provide support and training to twelve
         (12) Native American students in completion of a pre-service education program, which
         will enable these individuals to meet the requirements for full state certification or
         licensure as a teacher. Twelve participants will be selected in the fall 2009 semester
         to begin receiving services in January 2010. Participants will receive full tuition and
         fees, a book stipend of $400 per semester, a monthly living stipend of $1,400, and child
         care assistance.

  III.   POSTHUMOUS DEGREE

         We request approval to award a posthumous degree, Bachelor of Business
         Administration degree in Management, to Justin Ryan Pittman. Mr. Pittman was in his
         last semester of classes and was on schedule to graduate in December. He needed 18
         hours to complete his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Management.
         Justin was killed in an automobile accident on Saturday, June 13, 2009. It is the
         recommendation of his faculty, the Dean of the John Massey School of Business and
         the Executive Team of the University that this request be approved.

         This request is in compliance with our policy and the Oklahoma State Regents for
         Higher Education policy on the awarding of posthumous degrees.



Respectfully,



Jf:z~
Interim President
