INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia State University is set to host an annual program that provides summer learning opportunities to students pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics degrees.
The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience program symposium is being held Thursday at the campus in Institute.
The program is funded by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission's Division of Science and Research. The initiative was also funded through an award from the National Science Foundation.
Selected students receive a $3,500 stipend for a 10-week period, working with faculty members to continue research projects.
Fourteen students participated in the 2014 program and will present on their projects at the symposium.
