FIRST2STEM is funded by a grant from the Department of Education through its Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program, and eligibility is limited to students in all of the following categories:
FIRST2STEM offers many benefits to ensure your successful transition to your chosen STEM major. You will be part of a learning community with other FIRST2STEM scholars that will give you access to faculty and staff who are committed to your academic and personal success. FIRST2STEM is specifically designed to help students through their first math courses, all the way through Calculus (MATH 160), which for many STEM majors is required before the first major course. Depending on your math placement category (Quantitative Reasoning Category), this can be up to four courses over four semesters (MATH 101 > MATH 105 > MATH 126 > MATH 160). FIRST2STEM scholars will have access to tutors and special workshops in the STEM Success Center to help them through these courses.
