STEM Initiatives

The Posse STEM Program, first developed in 2006 and substantially expanded in 2014, now partners with 10 institutions of higher education to improve the number of diverse students who persist and graduate from college with degrees in STEM fields. Earlier this year, the Simons Foundation, a private foundation dedicated to advancing research in basic science and mathematics, awarded Posse a $450,000 grant to support the STEM program’s continued growth and development.
