The College of Science & Mathematics at the University of North Georgia (UNG) has received a federal grant for nearly $615,000 to support students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The grant will provide annual, competitive scholarships of $4,362 to 24 talented, full-time freshmen who do not have their financial needs met through traditional financial aid. Twelve scholarships will be awarded to students on UNG's Dahlonega Campus and 12 to students on UNG's Gainesville Campus.

The grant is part of the National Science Foundation's Scholarship in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S-STEM) project, which aims to increase the STEM workforce by recruiting and supporting academically talented, low-income students through degree completion, and partnering with employers to facilitate job placement.

The remainder of the grant funds will provide support for three other related objectives during the five-year period:

  • Create supportive environments to encourage students to stay through degree completion
  • Improve student support programs through faculty mentoring, peer mentoring, academic workshops, tutoring, an early alert system, counseling, disciplinary activities, undergraduate research experiences, and participation in professional meetings
  • Draw in industry partners who will provide guest lecturers, site visits, special activities, and internship and placement opportunities in STEM occupations

The award was received July 15 and will end June 30, 2020.
