Who We Are:

Reaching Rural STEM-H Students (R2S2) is a 4.9 million grant funded by the U.S. Department Of Education to serve Hispanic and low-income students from rural areas to achieve advancement in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Health (STEM-H) fields of study. 

The grant is specifically designed to target Hispanic and low-income students from rural areas pursuing a STEM-H degree. Though the program offers great services, it recognizes student success is a campus-wide effort, thus, many of the program's services are open to all students.
