MPS Scholars
Support STEM undergrads and their pathways to success!

MPS Scholars is a new program in the Division of Mathematical & Physical Sciences (MPS) that provides a welcoming and academically supportive environment for intended majors in their first two years. The program paves pathways to success for all undergraduates, with particular attention to the needs of students from under-resourced schools and economically-disadvantaged backgrounds. The goals of the program are to help students succeed in their chosen MPS major and advance to degree completion, forge into graduate programs, and prepare for industry jobs and STEM careers.
