Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The program seeks to :
- increase the number of low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need obtaining degrees in S-STEM eligible disciplines and entering the workforce or graduate programs in STEM;
- improve the education of future scientists, engineers, and technicians, with a focus on low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need; and
- generate knowledge to advance understanding of how interventions or evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities affect the success, retention, transfer, academic/career pathways, and graduation of low-income students in STEM.
