30 Sep UW-Green Bay receives $1.2M grant for science and math
A four-year federal grant award of $1.2 million will assure that high school students will continue learning at the Regional Center for Math and Science on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus.
The continuation grant, awarded recently through the Department of Education’s Federal TRIO Programs, will allow the program to run through at least 2013.
The Regional Center for Math and Science serves low-income first-generation students interested in majoring in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. In its 17 years of operation at UW-Green Bay, the center has served more than 600 students from around the Midwest. Of those, 92 percent have gone on to college and 76 percent have graduated from college, about three-times the expected rate for students from the demographic served by the program. Also, 69 percent of the Regional Center for Math and Science program participants graduate from college with degrees in science, technology, engineering or math fields.
