Washington, DC, July 20, 2017
Congressman Jimmy Gomez (CA-34), is proud to congratulate California State University, Los Angeles on the recent announcement that they've been awarded $464,977 from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The award will be used to broaden and support participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) undergraduate programs for underrepresented students.
Led by Emily Allen, Dean of Cal State LA’s College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology, the award will be used to expand and scale-up Cal State LA’s first-year experience (FYrE@ECST) program for undergraduate students at its College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology. The FYrE program aims to build a stronger academic foundation during the students' first year by developing the cultural and social capital necessary for students to successfully navigate their undergraduate experience.
