NSF Grantees Poster Session
This paper provides the details of a poster that will be presented in the National Science Foundation (NSF) Grantees Poster Session at the 2021 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition. The poster will report the status of an NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S-STEM) project. The objectives of this project are 1) enhancing students’ learning by providing access to extra and co-curricular experiences, 2) creating a positive student experience through mentorship, and 3) ensuring successful student placement in the STEM workforce, graduate, or professional school. The students who are supported by this project receive financial and educational assistance through various evidence-based modules integrated with their undergraduate education starting with the summer prior to matriculation. The students supported by this grant were recruited through one of the two project cohorts. The paper describes features such as demographics, high school GPA, and ACT/SAT scores of the participating students. The paper provides information about the completed and ongoing tasks of the project to date. The completed tasks include the development and evaluation of a summer bridge program and a freshman engineering success course. The ongoing tasks consist of the design and implementation of a service learning project course, and the design and implementation of an industry mentorship program. The paper also describes the modifications made to project tasks and resources to minimize the adverse impact of COVID-19 on the scholars. Moreover, the paper reports detailed assessment and evaluation data about the completed project tasks, and the academic success metrics of the scholars.
