September 26, 2010

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Fairmont State and Shepherd universities each will receive about $100,000 to launch science-related programs.

Gov. Joe Manchin's office said Thursday that $100,000 of interest earned by the "Bucks for Brains" Research Trust Fund will go to Fairmont State University for its efforts to capture content from new-media applications such as social-networking sites. The information would be used to generate new knowledge about national security and law-enforcement threats.

Shepherd University will receive $99,893 in "Bucks for Brains" interest to develop a program to help prepare students for careers in robotics engineering and science.

The universities will work to match the state research funds.
