Grant helps CCC aim minority students to STEM fields

Coconino Community College, in alliance with three other educational institutions, will be working to steer minority students into Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers.

According to information from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the National Science Foundation awarded the university a five-year, $4.6 million Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) grant.
