The S-STEM program is a synergistic effort between the NMSU College of Engineering, NMSU student support programs and services, and a network of community colleges and high schools that are geographically dispersed throughout New Mexico. Building on the existing state-wide partnership established in 1993 by the New Mexico Alliance for Minority Participation (New Mexico AMP) Program, the NMSU S-STEM will establish the S-STEM Scholarship available to transfer students and incoming freshman. The program will support academic achievement, professional development, workforce preparation, and baccalaureate degree completion of academically talented and financially needy students in engineering, particularly those from groups that are historically underrepresented.. For more information about the program, call Jossie Lannert, New Mexico AMP Conference and Student Program Coordinator, at (575) 646 -1847.

The Summer Community College Opportunity for Research Experience (SCCORE) offers New Mexico community college students a six-week summer bridge experience on the New Mexico State University campus. The program provides students the opportunity to research with NMSU faculty mentors, fostering student success and assisting them in the transition to participating New Mexico AMP baccalaureate-granting institutions. The program is designed to help students further realize their potential and build academic and research skills. In the program, students work 20-25 hours a week on their faculty mentor's research project and they enroll in a credit-bearing university-level course in which they prepare for a program-end symposium, explore professions of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), and learn more about transferring to a four-year university. Participants receive free room and board and paid university registration and course enrollment fees, in addition to a student stipend of $1500. The SCCORE program is sponsored by the New Mexico Alliance for Minority Participation (New Mexico AMP), a partnership representing New Mexico s federally-funded tribal colleges and state-funded community colleges and four-year universities. For more information about the program, call Jeanne Garland, New Mexico AMP SCCORE Coordinator, at (575) 646 -1847. This summer, the SCCORE program will be held from June 22- July 29, 2008

Students participating in the Undergraduate Research Assistantship (URA) program serve as apprentice researchers on a faculty member's research project. Participating students must establish a working schedule with their mentors and are expected to work a minimum of 10 hours per week during the academic year and 20 hours per week during the summer. Selection criteria for the URA program include GPA requirements, full-time enrollment in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) discipline, and a comprehensive and focused research project proposal. A strong interest in and potential for graduate studies is also considered. For more information about the program, call Josie Lannert, Student Research Program Coordinator, at (575) 646 -1847.

Hispanic Scholarship Fund

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) is the nation's leading Hispanic scholarship organization, providing the Hispanic community more college scholarships and educational outreach support than any other organization in the country. In 34 years, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund has awarded over 90,000 scholarships to students in need worth over $250M. Two-thirds of these students were the first in their families to go to college.

HSF’s mission is to strengthen America by advancing the college education of Hispanic Americans. HSF will achieve this mission by increasing the rate of Hispanics earning a college degree.
