A new million-dollar grant will support low-income students interested in engineering.

The National Science Foundation awarded Western Washington University a STEM grant intended to help students pursue a bachelor’s degree in one of the university’s three engineering programs.

It’s aimed at addressing challenges in recruiting and retaining academically talented, low-income students from diverse backgrounds.

It will provide scholarships of up to $10,000 a year to nearly 50 students, known as the BEES Scholars, over the next five years.
