Developing Reliable Educational Avenues to Manifest (DREAM) STEM Careers.

The DREAM STEM program is funded by the National Science Foundation - Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic Serving Institutions (Award # 19285). The grant is intended to excite young people about STEM careers through mentorship while removing obstacles and barriers to help follow the dream of a STEM career. The DREAM STEM program supports college students pursuing STEM careers through scholarships, financial assistance, and paid professional internships. These students are STEM Ambassadors who act as mentors to inspire younger students (grades 3-12) to dream of STEM jobs. STEM Ambassadors visit schools and share their stories about how they followed their own dreams. The program also supports high school students pursuing STEM programs at CFK, including marine science, marine engineering, diving technology, and engineering technology for renewable energy.
