University of Michigan gets $2M from National Science Foundation to boost science, math, engineering
5-year grant will establish M-STEM Academies at university
A $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation is expected to support efforts at the University of Michigan to educate a diverse group of science, math and engineering students.
The Ann Arbor school on Thursday announced the five-year grant will establish the M-STEM Academies at U-M. The school sys it will expand current efforts to attract a more diverse group of undergraduates into the science, technology, engineering and mathematics — or STEM — disciplines.
The effort aims to increase the number of undergraduates with degrees in those fields. It's described as a high school to college transition program.
