SIROW Receives A Three Year National Science Foundation Grant

Through funding from the National Science Foundation, SIROW is expanding its outreach, service, and research to include working with 60 Native American and Hispanic youth (grades 3rd – 8th) in the area of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Partnering with other UA colleges and departments, a local community organization, two public schools, and the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, the project will provide a mentoring program along with informal science education (field trips). This 3 year project, called “my” STEM (i-STEM) also includes a research component that will allow SIROW to assess the effectiveness of the program. SIROW is looking for adults to serve as mentors (community members, UA students in STEM disciplines, professionals in STEM careers) to engage in program activities with these aspiring youth. If you are interested in being a mentor or contributing financially by sponsoring a youth ($100.00 per youth), please contact Corey Knox at
