The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded a grant of $630,410 to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Distance Learning Center to increase access to online master’s degree programs in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) disciplines. The funding will provide scholarships for full-time students of up to $10,000.

The five-year project will provide multiple scholarships annually to full-time online students pursuing graduate education in STEM fields. The overall goal is to increase the number of students in STEM disciplines and the number of employees in STEM fields, especially among underrepresented populations. In addition to providing significant scholarship opportunities, the grant will also allow UW-Platteville to provide increased support services for online students including faculty advising and mentoring, peer mentoring, faculty/student research, and networking with STEM professionals. The impact of these activities on student retention will be reviewed under the terms of the grant funding.
