Collaborative Interdisciplinary Research Community (S-STEM) after Ten YearsAbstractThe Collaborative Interdisciplinary Research Community (CIRC) program for native upperdivision students and graduate students who have graduated from the Academic Success andProfessional Development program supported by NSF S-STEM programs has been in existencein the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University since 2003. The currentprogram is in its fourth year of S-STEM funding (#1060226). The program has evolved over theyears and now boosts a 95% graduation rate and 50% of the undergraduate program students godirectly to graduate school. For many years the program was fed by a lower division S-STEMprogram.This program serves native upper division and graduate students in engineering and computerscience. These students have unmet financial need and maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 and are USor permanent resident students. Approximately 60% of the scholarship funding awarded has beento females or underrepresented minority students. Many of the graduate students have gonethrough the 4 + 1 graduate program for a Master’s degree, but some have also go on to earn aPh.D.This paper gives an insight to the current CIRC scholarship students and also other students, noton scholarship, who are served by this program. The paper will also give summaries of theprogram and its impact.
