Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows Program

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows Program offers a $32,000 stipend toward completion of a yearlong M.Ed. at Duquesne University, West Chester University, or the University of Pennsylvania. Fellows prepare through a full-year clinical experience in a local high-need school, coupled with rigorous coursework. Then they teach for three years in a high-need middle or high school, with mentoring throughout the entire process.

2020 Fall Symposium Winners

The 2020 Fall Undergraduate Research Symposium was a success. In a year in which we had to distance ourselves from each other to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, the symposium was a virtual experience and students uploaded their pre-recorded presentations to our website and engaged in “synchronous commenting” with participants, using the YouTube virtual platform. A total of 55 students, participating in research programs at WVU ( RAP, EXCEL, Beckman), presented their research and creative endeavors in 6 different categories. Congratulations to our winners and runner up!

University of Cincinnati Programs for Undergraduates

The Cincinnati PREP program (PREP@UC) is a paid one-year post-bac in biomedical sciences. The program will be accepting applications starting on December 15, 2020. This opportunity is for graduating seniors who are interested in pursuing a doctoral degree but who are not quite ready to take this path, maybe because they lack research experience, other skills or even just the confidence that they can succeed.

International Research Experience for Students - Germany, Chemistry/Chemical Engineering

On behalf of the American Chemical Society Global Outreach Team, it is my pleasure to announce the opening of the application window for the 2021 International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program.

 The ACS IRES program is seeking applications from qualified U.S. undergraduate students to explore chemistry and chemical engineering lab research in an international setting. ACS has partnered with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to place U.S. students at German research labs from May-August 2021 (final research dates are determined between selected students at the host lab). This is a unique research opportunity for U.S. undergraduate sciences students to experience international research cooperation at its heart and developing their cross-cultural communication skills-a critical professional skill for researchers.
