In October, 2011, Allan Hancock College received a $4.3 million grant from the Department of Education to increase the amount of underrepresented populations in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. This grant means that our students now have even greater opportunities to pursue a career in STEM fields of study.
The STEM Select grant is expanding resources at Allan Hancock College so that students can enroll here on their way to completing a STEM degree at a university. The college has a STEM Center dedicated to serving these students, as well as an assigned STEM counselor. The STEM Center (located in Building N-annex, Room 108) provides FREE tutoring, textbook reserves, a study space, computer stations, a quiet group study room and a dedicated STEM counselor.
