Dow STEM Scholars Program: From Persistence and Surviving to Thriving in STEM

Dow STEM Scholars Program (DSS) is a grant initiative, funded by the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation, to increase in number of STEM graduates in Michigan. Dow Scholars must major in an approved STEM major, be a Michigan resident and place into MTH 1825, intermediate algebra. With a combination of specialized classes- DSS MTH 103 and CEM 121 classes, peer mentoring, intrusive advising, DSS Freshman Seminar, and our socioemotional and academic support, our students are indeed persisting at a higher rate than predicted for students who enter MSU placed into Math 1825.
