NASA Selects Winners for Minority University Research and Education Project Grants

NASA has selected five higher education institutions to share in $6 million as part of its Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP), an initiative that aims to provide educator training and expand science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) course offerings.

Four schools, Baltimore City Community College, Napa Valley College, Queensborough Community College and Santa Monica College, were selected to receive MUREP Community College Curriculum Improvement (MC3I) grants. Those schools will receive up to $250,000 per year for as many as three years to increase the number of STEM classes offered.

Texas State University was named a MUREP Educator Institute and will receive $1 million each year for three years to "create learning opportunities at NASA's ten field centers for future teachers," according to information released by the space agency.
