IRSE is dedicated to undergraduate STEM education through recruitment of students into STEM disciplines and (once enrolled) providing retention efforts to ensure the students are equipped with academic skills and a support system necessary for their completion of STEM degrees.
Among the the programs we have administered include AMP and the math tutoring program. More services will be added at a later date.
The All Nations Alliance for Minority Participation (AMP) provides Native American STEM students semester stipends and travel to professional conferences.
Secondly, Idea Network of Biomedical Research Excellence awarded IRSE funding to administer a mathematics tutoring program for all UM Native American students the past two years. The program provided daily one-on-one tutoring assistance at no charge as well stipends to students who regularly attended tutoring.
