Appalachian State University and the University of Angers in Angers, France, have a long standing partnership of collaboration. In summer 2017, the University of Angers offers summer research experiences to Appalachian students in the areas of physics, engineering, mathematics, chemistry, biology, computer science, geology, and other STEM fields (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics). During the program, students will live and work on the campus of the University of Angers. Last year, 10 Appstate students participated in this program. Funding is available to help with the costs through the Office of Student Research and the International Research Grant.
Angers is in the heart of the Loire Valley, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized for its chateaux and its natural beauty. The city is attractive for its quality of life and for its historic and artistic treasures. Angers is only 90 minutes by train from Paris.
