METRIC Scholarship Program
The Mentored Excellence Toward Research and Industry Careers (METRIC) scholarship program aims to improve recruitment, retention, and graduation of low-income and academically talented students from communities unrepresented in the Physical Sciences and Mathematics to prepare them to be the next generation of scientific leaders in their communities.
METRIC students receive need-based scholarships and participate in activities designed to facilitate their scholastic and professional development and to prepare them for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
