WV-INBRE program will provide funding for HSTA scholars attending West Virginia University and Marshall University to participate in biomedical science research. A maximum of 6 internships (3 at WVU/3 at MU) will be available. Funding will be provided to pay the student $10/hour to work for 15 hours per week for 25 weeks on the research for the 2017-2018 academic year. Projected start date of the internship is October 1, 2017 and funding will continue until April 30, 2018. To learn the list of mentors at West Virginia University and Marshall University, respectively, please refer to the WVU/Marshall mentors Directory.
Internships are available at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) located here in Morgantown, as well as at locations in
Pittsburgh and Oregon. These internships involve projects in a variety of STEM
fields including a renewable energy project run by a Biology PhD, a large
geology experiment lab, physics, engineering, etc. The internship has a
generous stipend, housing and travel allowance. A WVU alum that works at NETL
would like to see more WVU students apply for the internship and will be at an
informational dinner to be held in September (date, time, place TBD). Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Research (email@example.com) if you are a) a
student that is interested in learning more about this internship opportunity
or b) know a student that would be interested.
More information about the internship can be found at: https://orise.orau.gov/mlef/default.html.
Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students - Applications Open for Travel Award and Conference
The Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) is one of the nation’s largest STEM conferences for minority undergraduate students. Over the course of four days students present their research, explore over 350 exhibit booths, and network with schools and peers from across the nation. Undergraduate sophomores, juniors, seniors, postbaccalaureates, and community college students who have completed at least 30 credit hours are encouraged to submit an abstract for poster or oral presentation. Travel awards are available for first time presenters.
Apply for a travel award by August 25th and
The Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium is a university-wide poster symposium that showcases students' summer research and creative endeavor efforts. Held each summer near the end of July (typically the last Thursday in July), students present their research in one of several offered categories with poster visuals and presentations scrutinized and judged. The 2017 Symposium (see 2017 program) consisted of 108 posters, 108 poster presenters, eight different judged categories, 14 judges and 14 poster winners and runner-ups. This event was open to the WVU community in the afternoon and all (administrators, faculty, students, parents, etc.) were invited to attend to help us celebrate the achievements of our undergraduates. See the poster winners and runner-ups for the 2017 symposium event!
