The STEM Advancement Program (STEMAP) engages students from New Mexico regional universities, community colleges and tribal colleges in the research funded by New Mexico EPSCoR. Each summer, 12 students will take part in a week of workshops at New Mexico Tech on energy topics and scientific research and they will spend nine weeks working with New Mexico EPSCoR-funded faculty and students on cutting edge research that is important to New Mexico. The summer program concludes in a research conference at which the students present their results.

Students selected for this program may also choose to participate in a fellowship during the following academic year during which they will work with a sponsoring faculty member to develop individual objectives that extend their experiences in STEM research. Throughout the academic year, NM EPSCoR will provide workshops for students in topics such as applying for an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, developing effective science posters, and using strategies for student success.

Participants will be part of a team of faculty and students working together on one of five research projects. Students will receive a stipend of $4,000, free housing on campus, a meal allowance, reimbursement for travel expenses (limitations apply), and 3 credits of independent study from New Mexico Tech. Subject to availability, family housing and/or child care services may be available to participants with families.
