Expanding Opportunities in STEM

The FGCU STEM Academy improves students' prospects by exposing young minds to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and by helping them improve math skills.

Support the Academy

Many of the high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors who participate in our program come from underserved and underrepresented backgrounds and aspire to be first-generation collegians. Your support can help us continue to provide them a path toward higher education and promising careers.
