Lockheed Martin Cooperation has been actively working with Fairmont State University by providing internships and workshops for its students.
Monday, it presented a $15,000 donation in support of the University’s «Open Source Intelligence Exchange» Program.
The program prepares students to pursue careers in the FBI or CIA.
The grant will go toward additional equipment and operation of the lab.
«It’s very important because this grant is being matched by monies that we have received from the West Virginia Research Trust Fund,» said Dr. Maria Rose, president at FSU.
The National Security and Intelligence students are handpicked and screened to participate in the program.
