BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - The National Science Foundation will award Montana State University a $3 million grant to expand its nanotechnology center.

Nanotechnology is fundamental in many areas of science including biology, physics, and engineering sciences.

The grant will be used to bring together existing MSU labs into shared space that will be more easily accessible. The money also will improve existing equipment and buy new equipment.

MSU was one of six nationwide research sites chosen to receive a grant. The grant will be distributed over the next five years.

MSU has five existing labs involved in nanotechnology.

The university also announced that the late Bill Wurst, who graduated in 1959 in electrical engineering, left $4 million to MSU as matching funds for its new engineering building.
