MemphiSTEM is a National Science Foundation-funded project at the University of Memphis, with the overall goal to increase the number of U.S. citizens and permanent residents with undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

MemphiSTEM combines the strengths of the University's support infrastructure with efforts and expertise of faculty, staff, students, administrators, and the professional community. The project implements a number of core strategies designed to increase persistence to graduation, including a summer Mathematics Bridge Bootcamp, research experiences for undergraduates, networking, mini-grants for on-campus professional student organizations, travel awards and STEM learning communities. Evaluations of MemphiSTEM indicate that undergraduate students participating in the project strategies are more likely to be retained in STEM than non-participating STEM students at the UofM.

Please use the links on this page to explore the opportunities and benefits which MemphiSTEM offers to students majoring in or having an interest in STEM programs.

"Being involved with MemphiSTEM has been a wonderful experience for me. It has helped me forge relationships with professors and other students that have been invaluable to me. MemphiSTEM has helped me become more prepared for a job after I graduate by allowing me to have a leadership position and work with teams. I can't believe how lucky I am to have been able to be involved with MemphiSTEM." - Lorrie
