The national media dubbed the region “Trump Nation” as they searched to find the answers behind what many considered to be a surprise victory for Donald Trump.
But much like America, Appalachia is a melting pot of people representing a variety of social, economic and political perspectives. In an effort to provide a more nuanced understanding of the region to a national audience, West Virginia UniversityReed College of Media, in partnership with West Virginia Public Broadcasting and The Daily Yonder, is launching the reporting project,”100 Days in Appalachia.”
At the time the money becomes available, it will be used to support major journalism initiatives that provide students with both foundational skills in writing, reporting and research and new skills in emerging journalistic practice.
The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) (May 30-July 28, 2017) is now accepting applications from undergraduates who are interested in graduate school and research/creative work within their discipline as well as their faculty research mentors. Selected students complete 8-weeks of full-time research at West Virginia University (WVU) under the direction of a WVU faculty research mentor and a graduate or post-doctoral mentor. Undergraduate participant benefit includes $3,700 stipend. The application works best if the student has a faculty mentor in mind (or vice versa), and they both apply separately, requesting that they each work with the other. Review of completed applications will begin March 1, 2017. For more information and link to the online applications (for undergraduates and faculty research mentor), visit the SURE website .
