West Virginia, Kentucky Schools Teaming to Boost Achievement | Best States
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia and Kentucky colleges are teaming up to boost the performance of Appalachian students in science, technology, engineering and math.
The alliance aims to support STEM education for underrepresented students. The effort is backed by a National Science Foundation grant.
Education officials say the grant will support learning initiatives, stipends, workshops and research activities at the schools.
Alliance-wide goals for the effort’s latest phase include increasing the number of STEM bachelor’s degrees earned by underrepresented students to an average of 380 per year.
