The U.S. Department of Education (DOE) announced on October 26 that it will award $182,549 to Borough Manhattan Community College (BMCC/CUNY) in support of the college’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs.

BMCC is one of 13 minority institutions nationwide to receive part of the DOE's total $3 million in funds allocated through the Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program.

“Strengthening these institutions that serve large minority populations in STEM is vital to building a strong economy and competitive workforce, while helping ensure that all students have the opportunity to be successful in college, careers and life,” U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said in a press release.
