Metropolitan State University is a member of the North Star STEM Alliance, a federally funded program that encourages minority participation in STEM fields. The objective of the alliance is to increase the number of African-American Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Alaska Native and Pacific Islander students receiving STEM baccalaureates.
All students can join the North Star STEM Alliance to find out about events and programs that are designed to help students in STEM careers. If you are a student who comes from minority groups that are under-represented in mathematics, sciences, and information and computer sciences, you may also be eligible for financial assistance with your studies at Metropolitan State. Stipends are available every semester for eligible students who create study groups, work with science and math tutors at the tutoring center, Alliance events, or who do research projects with faculty.
