The UMass Amherst STEM Ambassadors Program (STEM AP) is a support network for undergraduate STEM majors at UMass Amherst, UMass Boston, and Holyoke Community College. Through mentoring, early research experiences, service learning/outreach opportunities, and professional skills development workshops, STEM AP aims to increase STEM interest, engagement, and retention, and to increase the number of students who enroll in graduate studies and pursue careers in STEM fields.
Undergraduate students majoring in STEM disciplines are invited to join the program and become members of a community of scholars who share a passion for all things STEM. We particularly encourage students who are traditionally marginalized in STEM including first generation students, students who are Pell Grant eligible, and students of color to apply. STEM AP provides a supportive academic and social community that embraces student diverse identities, interests and experiences.
STEM AP was initially funded through the University of Massachusetts President’s Enhancement Funding Program from June 2014 through June 2017. It is currently funded by a 3-year grant through the National Science Foundation (NSF).
