Thirty at WVU Are Global Award Recipients


West Virginia University says its students have set a record with 30 global scholarships and fellowships this year.

The number is up from last year’s total of 17 and the previous record of 21 in 2013.

Two additional students were named as finalists for the awards.

The awards include three students who received Fulbright Scholarships.

The school says the awards will allow the recipients to research and make contributions to science, learning new languages, teaching abroad, studying different cultures and forming solutions to critical world issues.
