NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Program (S-STEM) :
A well-educated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a significant contributor to maintaining the competitiveness of the U.S. in the global economy. The National Science Foundation (NSF) Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) program addresses the need for a high quality STEM workforce in STEM disciplines supported by the program and for the increased success of low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need who are pursuing associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)
The symposium will provide participants with an opportunity to:
• Share and learn about effective STEM undergraduate education and workforce preparation strategies
• Disseminate best practices in STEM undergraduate education and workforce preparation ideas among colleagues and others
• Make new connections and create collaborations
• Promote a shared measurement system
• Enhance communication
• Generate a sense of community among those seeking to expand academic opportunities for talented low-income STEM students
The format for the symposium will include plenary sessions, discussion sessions, workshops, poster sessions, informal round tables, and structured networking sessions.
