Texas State will receive a $843,895 federal grant for the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) program in support of minorities and to examine the effects of community cultural wealth on Black and Hispanic women in the P-20 Computing Workforce Pipeline in Texas, according to a press release from the office of Sen. John Cornyn.
The funding comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and is supported by Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) and EHR Core research (ECR) Programs.
“It’s imperative we work to ensure typically underrepresented women of color have the tools they need to succeed in STEM education and careers,” Cornyn says in a press release. “I applaud this announcement and will continue to support all Texas workers.”
This is a developing story. The University Star will provide updates as they are made available.
