Program Mission

The PATHways to STEM through Enhanced Access and Mentorship (PATHS) Program’s mission is to increase the number, persistence, and success of underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and medicine.The PATHS Program is a four-year undergraduate scholarship and student support program that provides an up to $10,000 scholarship/year, enhanced access to stratified mentorship, campus support, hands-on training, and academic preparation support. The programs’ all-access model for support, empowerment, and professional exposure will mobilize a new, diverse generation of STEM leaders by fostering STEM scholar identity development and early career identification through summer research programs as well as lab and internship placement.
