West Virginia Wesleyan College is sponsoring a Graduate Studies Symposium: A Celebration of Scholarship April 17 in the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts, the college announced.

This symposium is geared toward recent and current graduate students of Wesleyan.

Qualified students are encouraged to submit scholarly work or creative endeavors created in 2012 and 2013 including original research focused on an issue or problem in the student's field, a project the student executed individually or as part of a group, a literary work you will read at the symposium, or a critical review/paper of literature and/or past research on a particular topic, the college's news release listed.  

"As our graduate programs have grown over the past five years, we believe it is important that we share with the Wesleyan and broader community the scholarship that occurs every day in each of our graduate programs whether novel ideas as solutions to problems, creative works, or scholarly research," Kay Long, dean of graduate studies, said in the release.

Applications for the Symposium are due March 25.
