UTSA awarded $3M NSF grant to support Hispanic and underrepresented students in STEM

SEPTEMBER 1, 2022 — The University of Texas at San Antonio has been awarded a five-year, $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study pedagogical approaches for supporting Hispanic and underrepresented students in STEM disciplines.

The funding will advance the university’s strategic goal to become a model for student success, a great public research university, and an exemplar for strategic growth and innovative excellence.

“I deeply believe education is the primary driver of social mobility, and this award greatly enhances UTSA’s efforts to develop even more innovative programs to support future Roadrunners and students from all backgrounds nationwide,” said UTSA President Taylor Eighmy. “From our selection as a recipient of the prestigious Seal of Excelencia to our more recent induction as a founding member of the Alliance of Hispanic Serving Research Universities, we are incredibly honored to be recognized for our commitment to advancing Latino student success in San Antonio and beyond.”
