Grant Summary

$240,000 over 36 months to offer UA Institute students a program that motivates them to further their readiness for higher education in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, and to support the UA Institute's college preparatory activities. The program integrates summer coursework, in-class presentations by Polytechnic students and faculty, math and science-related clubs and teams, and visits to the Polytechnic campus and industry facilities and laboratories. While the program will primarily focus on a core group of students over the life of the grant, it may potentially involve all UA Institute high school students, through participation in after-school clubs, STEM-centered social networks, and in-class modules and programs.
