Welcome to STEM Academy @ Oregon State University

Our Mission

STEM Academy engages K-12 youth in programs designed to increase college attendance and participation in the STEM fields.

STEM Academy seeks to:

  • Broaden participation of underrepresented groups (women, underrepresented minorities, low-income, rural,first-generation, homeless, and disabled) in STEM fields.
  • Maintain year-round programs for K-12 students aimed at increasing college enrollment, retention, graduation rates, and life-long learning.
  • Establish and maintain STEM partnerships within the state and across the nation to offer high quality STEM programs based on researched best practices.
  • Provide various mentoring programs for youth in the early stages of their STEM exploration.
  • Emphasize STEM endeavors that promote social equity.

Funding:

STEM Academy is a self-funded Program, so we rely on grants, as well as business or personal donations to continue to offer quality programming and to provide scholarship opportunities for those who otherwise could not afford to participate.  If you would like to be part of ensuring the future of these programs by making a contribution, please contact our office at (541) 737-8139 or stem.academy@oregonstate.edu.  Your contribution can be added to others to really make a difference!
