FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The George Washington Carver Research Program is nearing an end at the University of Arkansas. The eight-week summer program concludes next week when interns present their research to the university community.

The Carver program is a recruitment initiative that identifies and provides internship opportunities to superior undergraduate students from historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions and tribal colleges.

Eight interns are participating in the program this year, representing eight different institutions and having research interests in a variety of disciplines.

The interns work with faculty mentors in the fields of biomedical engineering, business, computer science, electrical engineering, geosciences, horticulture and political science.
