DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ Bethune-Cookman University is joining forces with two other universities to help develop more minority researchers in the sciences.

The Daytona Beach school announced last week it was partnering with the University of Florida and Florida A&M University to train five students each at UF’s campus.

The students will get a hands-on research experience, access to university mentors outside their home institution and career development guidance.

The students also will get a $6,000 stipend for their summers of research.

Bethune-Cookman is a historically black college.
