New grants for minority STEM education

In an effort to strengthen science, technology, engineering and mathematics education for minorities, the Department of Education has awarded more than $3 million in new three-year awards to 13 colleges and universities that have a large minority population.

The grants will address any barriers minority students face entering the STEM field as well as support pre-college enrichment science activities, tutoring in science education, faculty training, STEM curriculum improvements and STEM lab and classroom renovation.

The list of awardees can be found here.
