FIU offers full ride to 14-year-old girl

MIAMI (WFLX) - Florida International University has offered a full scholarship to a 14-year-old girl.

Administrators were so impressed with Rebecca Rauch-Thane's science fair project, they decided to give her a full ride. Her project tested for heavy metal soil contamination in Virginia Key and Key Biscayne.

The Miami Beach senior high school student hasn't said if she'll take FIU up on the offer.
