Drake State launched a collaborative project with NASA to create career pathways for traditionally underrepresented students in STEM called the Frontiers Engineering Coalition, which is funded by a multi-year grant from NASA’s Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP).
MUREP provides financial assistance via competitive awards to minority-serving institutions to increase the number of racial and ethnic minorities and women in science and engineering fields. The Frontiers Engineering Coalition offers free educational and/or professional development opportunities for middle and high school students, college students, and educators.
