Dr. Kara Baldwin (Office of TRiO Programs) received new funding from the U.S. Department of Education for the project “Student Support Services STEM-H Program.”

The SSS-STEM Health Sciences (STEM-H) program will identify and provide academic support to 120 undergraduate students who are first-generation, low-income, and/or have a disability, and are majoring in STEM-Health Sciences. The primary goal of SSS STEM-H is to increase the educational success of these students so that they earn a bachelor’s degree in STEM-H and are prepared to enroll in a graduate program or begin their careers. This proposed SSS STEM-H program will provide: individualized academic tutoring; reading, writing, and study skills coaching and development; advising in academic progress, graduate school, career, and personal concerns; financial aid counseling; financial literacy; and first-year experience instruction. Participants in SSS STEM-H will receive intensive support through individual sessions, small groups workshops, and access to support services online from SSS STEM-H staff and partners in STEM-H departments.
