Truman Receives NSF Grant for Math and Computer Science

A recently awarded grant from the National Science Foundation for Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics will allow Truman to assist approximately 37 students in math and computer science classes.

The NSF S-STEM grant will provide academic support in the form of personal tutoring, guest speakers, field trips and discussion panels, as well as career placement support through Truman’s ties with regional industry partners.

Fifteen of the scholarships will be designated for freshmen, while the remaining 22 will be reserved for upperclassmen.

Dana Vazzana, Bob Matthews, Alan Garvey, Jason Shaw, Jon Beck and Eric Howard are responsible for securing the $587,144 grant and overseeing its implementation at Truman.
