St. Mary’s receives $600,000 NSF Grant

Science Foundation Grant money makes college feasible for a small group of science, engineering and technology majors.

Despite the economic distress that grips the nation, foundations are still supporting and giving generously to educational institutions and nonprofit organizations. St.Mary’s University is one of the lucky recipients to be awarded a $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.

The grant is providing scholarships to 24 science, engineering and technology students and special programming opportunities. This special group is part of a unique four–year STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Scholars Program. The scholars, who represent first-generation students or from underrepresented groups, will begin their journey this fall.
