What’s the news?
Thirty students at West Virginia University have broken records for their academic work, by winning 11 prestigious awards, scholarships and fellowships in 2018. With opportunities ranging from studying abroad to educating incarcerated people, studying black holes to gun ownership/violence in America, these students exemplify WVU’s mission to lead through local, state and global engagement.
“The selection committees for these incredible scholarships recognize that WVU's best and brightest students are competitive with students from anywhere in the country. It is such a privilege to get to know these young men and women, and to work alongside our terrific faculty advisors. We're so proud of them for showing the world what amazing students we have." –Amy B. Cyphert, Director of WVU’s ASPIRE Office
Two of the students, Emma Harrison (Truman Scholar, Rhodes Finalist and Civic Newman Fellow) and Adam Craig (winner of Critical Language Scholarship) can be contacted for additional comment or interviews at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
