The School of Engineering, Mathematics, and Science (SEMS) at Robert Morris University (RMU) was awarded a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund scholarships to 21 academically talented but financially challenged students majoring in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Each student received a total of $24,000 over their four years of study. This study presents the experiences during years three through five of the grant project. Most importantly, this paper focuses on the experiences and tracking data from this cohort of students during their second, third, and fourth years as college students.
