University of Iowa biomedical engineering senior Sraavya Undurty has received the Alliant Energy/Erroll B. Davis Jr. Award recognizing engineering or business students from underrepresented groups.

In addition to a degree in biomedical engineering, Undurty is pursuing degrees in pre-medicine, along with minors in Spanish and music.

The Alliant Energy Foundation created the Erroll B. Davis Jr. Award to honor Davis, who served as chairman of the board of Alliant Energy Corp. from 2000 to 2006 and is now chancellor of the University System of Georgia. The award, made possible through a gift of $400,000 from the Alliant Energy Foundation, recognizes its recipients' academic achievement, leadership in campus and community organizations and potential for future career success. As part of an agreement between the Alliant Energy Foundation and the Regents' institutions, the gift will ensure that the award is presented annually in perpetuity and will honor up to four students each year.
