UT Arlington doctoral students receive nearly $1 million NSF grant

🕐 1 min read

A new National Science Foundation grant will support a dozen University of Texas at Arlington doctoral students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, also known as STEM fields, with free tuition and a $30,000 yearly stipend for two years.

The $974,250 in funding for UTA’s Bridge to the Doctorate Fellowships comes from the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program at the NSF. Stokes played a pivotal role in the quest for civil rights, equality, and social and economic justice throughout his tenure in the U.S. Congress.

UT Arlington has been a part of the University of Texas System LSAMP since 1993, collaborating with the lead institution University of Texas at El Paso and other UT campuses. The goal is to increase the quantity and quality of degree recipients in STEM fields, especially among women and minorities. “At UT Arlington we are committed to educating the next generation of diverse STEM leaders as well as future university professors who excel at teaching and research,” said Ron Elsenbaumer, UT Arlington provost and vice president for academic affairs.
