STEM Core

The STEM Core program is a cohort-based learning community that focuses on expanding the pipeline of students pursuing careers in the STEM Field. Participants will take classes together, receive academic counseling, intensive math preparation, guaranteed admissions to math courses, and internship placement assistance. Our scholars are part of one of three programs:

1) STEM Scholars – students majoring in science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM)
2) Cyber Scholars – students interested in pursuing technology related careers
3) MASS Scholars – STEM majors who have been awarded the Math Acceleration for STEM Students scholarship
