NSF Funds Pilot to Boost STEMSeptember 20, 2016 |
Cal State Fullerton has been awarded nearly $300,000 from the National Science Foundation for a two-year pilot project to scale up an existing program that provides a pathway for underrepresented community college students to earn bachelor’s degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields at a four-year university.
The National Science Foundation this week issued its first-ever awards for the NSF INCLUDES (Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science) program. It is a comprehensive initiative to enhance U.S. leadership in science and engineering by broadening participation in STEM. CSUF and San Francisco State are the only California State University (CSU) campuses to receive the grants.
