S-STEM Program

The S-STEM program is a year-long program for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) majors. An S-STEM student completes a project or conducts advanced work in an area that is supervised by a faculty member. In order to participate, the student must be a STEM major, be enrolled full-time, be a US citizen or permanent resident, have at least a 3.0 gpa (or a 2.5 in some cases) and be in financial need. Should the student finish the project successfully, the student receives a stipend of $1500 at the end of the year.

Prof. Abdramane Serme is currently the math department liaison for the S-STEM program. Students who are interested in participating in the program but who do not yet have a mentor, or faculty who are interested in mentoring students but who do not yet have a student to mentor, may contact Prof. Serme, and he will try to match students with faculty.
