Grants and Awards

Enhancing Inclusive Excellence in Higher Education Learning Communities: This grant is awarded by New Hampshire EPSCoR to projects contributing to enhancing inclusive excellence for New Hampshire Communities Initiative by creating a STEM project targeted at refugee, immigrant and underrepresented high school freshman. The STEM unit will expand the offerings of the Access Academy at Saint Anselm College, a program that engages refugee, immigrant and underrepresented high school youth in semester-long campus experiences which promote school success and prepare students for college. The freshman year STEM project involves Biodiversity Mapping Project using GPS technology to capture and record wildlife and plant life in a biodiverse wetland area using Google Earth to develop a biodiversity map of the Avery Brook Watershed in Francestown, NH. The sophomore year experience will be a Computational Approach to Problem Solving. The project will forge new partnerships between Saint Anselm College, a local high school, and the property owners and conservation volunteers associated with the Avery Brook Watershed. As the project grows, it is hoped that we will expand to draw students from more local high schools, and to create partnerships with local science and technology companies and other environmental sites.
