Math Science Partnership Minority Student Pipeline
The Math Science Partnership Minority Student Pipeline (MSP) 2 is a five year, $12.4 million grant funded by the National Science Foundation. Bowie State University (BSU) will serve as the Lead Institution with Dr. Anisha Campbell as the Principal Investigator. Participating partners include University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP), Prince George's Community College (PGCC), Towson University (TU), and the Prince George's County Public School System (PGCPS). The goal of the grant is to create a pipeline for bringing more minority students into STEM fields of study via a four-fold approach that includes:
- Professional development programs created by University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) and Prince George's Community College (PGCC) for teachers in grades 4-8 designed around principles of teaching and learning through inquiry science.
- Summer research experiences for Prince George's County Public School System (PGCPS) high school science teachers with BSU, TU, and UMCP faculty.
- Mentored teaching experiences for 100 undergraduate underrepresented minority students coordinated by UMCP and 50 undergraduate research experiences through BSU.
- Early college/dual enrollment science courses through BSU and PGCC for at least 250 PGCPS high school students over five years.
Bowie State University will host a 4 week science academy for rising 10th grade high school students in the Prince George's County School System. During three, consecutive summers, students will receive coursework in Biology, Chemistry, and Math. The objective of the program is to provide college credits in Biology and Chemistry prior to their high school graduation.
