New grants for minority STEM education

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.
