New Scholarship Opportunity for West Virginia High School Students Planning on Attending WVU
West Virginia University (WVU) and the WVU Center for Excellence in STEM Education announce a new scholarship opportunity for West Virginia high school students planning on attending WVU. The (Computational Physics) CPHYS scholarship can provide support up to $10,000 per year for students attending WVU and majoring in physics. A physics degree provides excellent training in computation skills while allowing the student to use those skills to better understand the universe. WVU physicists use computation to understand distant stars (pulsars), to model gravitational waves, to understand plasmas, and to design new electronic devices. About one-third of all physics graduates work in the computer industry. Both high school students and students at WVU can apply for the scholarship. It can be renewed for four years. Application instructions and materials are available at the WVU Physics Department Website (https://physics.wvu.edu/) at https://physics.wvu.edu/students/undergraduate-students/financial-aid-and-scholarships/cphys-scholarship-description.
