Kaycie Butler, a junior at the Robert E. Cook Honors College of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, has earned the Department of Homeland Security Scholarship. Following her spring semester, she will attend a 10 week internship at her choice of one department approved lab.

The biochemistry major was chosen from students across the country who wrote essays on how their majors and career goals will help defend the United States. Butler’s paper focused on the use of biochemistry to fight terrorism and protect the country from potential health disasters.

As a recipient of this award, Butler receives a scholarship covering the cost of tuition and all mandatory fees. She will attend an orientation in Washington D.C. during November with the small group of award recipients.

Butler, Daughter of Ed and Diane Butler from Greensburg, Pennsylvania, is currently involved in organic chemistry research with Dr. Carl LeBlond, a chemistry professor at IUP. She is also the western captain of the IUP Equestrian Team, a member of Alpha Chi Sigma, the Professional Chemistry Frat, and a member of the American Chemical Society.
