NSF Funds Florida Tech-led Initiative for STEM Scholarships

MELBOURNE, FLA. — A Florida Institute of Technology proposal to use scholarships to boost the number of students studying the critical Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics discipline of engineering has received a National Science Foundation grant worth more than $610,000 over the next five years.

Led by principal investigator Ashok Pandit, a professor and head of the civil engineering department at Florida Tech’s College of Engineering, the newly funded proposal, “Growing the Community College Pipeline for Careers in Civil, Chemical, and Ocean Engineering through the FITS-STEM Program” will provide eligible community and state college students from across the country one or two years of scholarships worth up to $10,000 per year when they transfer to Florida Tech to study civil, chemical or ocean engineering.
