Research is an important part of the undergraduate experience. Students engage in enriching research experiences that allow them to explore their intended majors, develop relationships with faculty in their field, and cultivate critical thinking skills.
WVSU has partnered with American Electric Power, Dow and AT&T to develop the Research Rookies program which provides stipends for freshman and sophomore students who engage in yearlong research projects.
Successful candidates must be highly motivated, have a strong academic performance and a commitment to discovery.
Students admitted to the Research Rookies Program will be paired with a faculty member in their field of interest for an innovative research experience.
