STEM Initiatives

The Posse STEM Program, first developed in 2006 and substantially expanded in 2014, now partners with 9 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.
