Department of Education logo

Project ACCESS (Accelerating Completion and Career Education in the School of Sciences) is a Department of Education funded Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S-STEM) program. The main goal of Project ACCESS is to enable Hispanics and low-income students with academic ability to successfully complete postsecondary degrees in biotechnology, biology, chemistry, mathematics and information data science and pursue careers in STEM fields. This is accomplished with scholarships and stipends, mentoring, research experience, tutoring, career exploration/education, a lending library, and accelerated pathways for students to complete their degrees in 15 months.

Be a part of our growing community of ACCESS scholars! We are located at ASSC 364.
