$3.5 M awarded to STEM students by National Science Foundation

National Science Foundation Scholarships

To expand the diversity for the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students were granted with a five year, $3.5 million award by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to the Northeast Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NELSAMP). The NELSAMP institute was founded in 2001 which is an alliance of six New England universities including Tufts and North-eastern University. The prime aim behind commencing this institute is to raise the number of STEM graduates to those who are generally understated students in New England. The commencement of NELSAMP has raised the rates of recruitment, retention and graduation for the underrepresented students pursuing STEM courses. The number of registrations has also amplified in the alliance from 1000 students to 3800.

The funds received from NSF would be utilised by NELSAMP to support minority students by providing them research opportunities, college and pre-college preparations and other graduate courses. The project at NELSAMP will also involve partner schools to participate in the activities and sponsor on campus projects. NELSAMP will be supporting the programs that aim to strengthen on-campus diversities in STEM and are within the alliance. Students in the NELSAMP will be offered opportunities to get involved in the academic bridge programs, peer mentoring, networking event that are conducted in the alliance, research opportunities, conferences and seminars related to STEM, and international research activities.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration.

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.
