Ellenbarger was awarded the 2017 Christian Scholars Foundation grant by Intervarsity’s Emerging Scholars Network to support her research to design compounds that change colors when exposed to chemical contaminants in drinking water. During the 2016-17 school year, Ellenbarger completed the first phase of her research as she hopes to develop simple color-changing test kits that can be deployed to remote locations around the world.
