MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia University has received a grant to better help students turn ideas into industry.

The Morgantown school has received an $80,000 grant from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation. Officials say the funding will support a student intellectual property patent services pilot project.

The project is a joint effort of WVU's College of Law, the College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design and the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources.

It will support provisional patent applications of students enrolled in West Virginia colleges and universities.

Those involved in the project say that with a number of courses and competitions encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation, the time was right to bolster WVU's patent resources.
