$990,550 awarded to Engineering and Computer Sciences College

On Aug. 7, The College of Engi- neering and Computer Sciences was presented a $990,550 scholarship grant in Science, Technology, Engi- neering and Mathematics (STEM) from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The funding of $7,500 per year sup- ports a project-based work studio to provide its 20 recipients, most of them women, resources to develop profes- sional and technical skills to further their career under faculty mentorship during their hands-on experience.

“I am pleased with this grant award,

which will allow Marshall to finan- cially support students, primarily women, in STEM fields,” stated Dr. Wook-Sung Yoo, chair of Department of Computer Sciences and Electrical Engineering. Yoo and team worked extremely hard for the grant to ac- quire federal funding, making it more affordable for students to join the computer science programs at Mar- shall University.

The grant will support the project for five years starting from fall 2021.
