WEST LIBERTY (AP) — West Liberty University has won a $65,000 grant to develop a new 15-hour online certification program in entrepreneurship.

The graduate-level course is tailored to the interests and schedules of West Virginia K-12 teachers who want to introduce entrepreneurship into their classes.

The grant from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation will fund the program from May through August, pending approval from the Higher Learning Commission. The foundation will pay tuition and fees for the first 10 students.

The courses are part of the master of arts in education program.

The West Liberty Center for Entrepreneurship will measure the outcomes in the classroom.

This fall, undergraduates and a West Liberty faculty member will visit the participating teachers' classrooms to evaluate how they're incorporating what they learned into lessons.
