Grad student raised research funds via crowdfunding, Utah Public Radio reports

Dulcinea Groff, a Ph.D. candidate with the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute, spoke with Utah Public Radio for a story about researchers  using crowdfunding to raise money to support their work. “Two years ago we started a campaign on the same platform — — and we raised about $11,000, in a month,” Groff told UPR. “And I think I would attribute that success to one of the people who — my adviser actually — has a huge social media presence on Twitter.”
