Support will make scholarships available to minority and women students interested in engineering and science and will increase significantly the number of minority and female students that MST can recruit to its science and engineering programs. Recipients of scholarships will also be exposed to career opportunities in transportation.
Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) scholarships are awarded to support female MST students studying science and engineering. MST’s WISE program provides a campus focal point for increasing the number of women in science, engineering, math, and technology fields through outreach, recruitment, and retention efforts from middle school age through undergraduate levels. WISE provides support programs such as mentoring, advising, professional/technical workshops, and social activities, with the goal of providing a rich academic and social experience for young women at MST. Minority Engineering and Science Program ( MEP) scholarships provide critical financial support for under-represented students majoring in engineering and science programs at MST. MEP scholarship students receive professional and academic support through the close-knit MEP network of friends, mentors and MST staff. MEP has a rich 30 year tradition of sponsoring events, activities and organizations that ensure its students are prepared for personal and professional success.
