Gatton Research Internship Grant


The Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky created the Gatton Research Internship Grant program in 2010.  Made possible by a gift from Mr. Carol Martin “Bill” Gatton, the program offers grants to Gatton Academy students between their junior and senior years to support summer research internships at WKU, across the Commonwealth, the USA, and the world.  By providing funding, the program directly creates research internships that otherwise would not have existed for Gatton Academy students.  In its first six years, the program has created 95 research internships for Gatton Academy students to study STEM problems in their areas of interest in a devoted, full-time research setting.  Past students have used their internships as a springboard to later apply for prestigious awards such as the Siemens Competition, the Intel Science Talent Search, and the Goldwater Scholarship.  Many recipients submit their work for peer-reviewed publication and for conference presentations.
