The Multicultural Engineering Program at Colorado School of Mines provides support to students through the CO-WY AMP grant by:
- Funding undergraduate students to participate on research projects with graduate students and/ or faculty.
- Funding undergraduate students to participate on research projects with NREL (http://www.nrel.gov/) scientists.
The Colorado-Wyoming Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CO-WY AMP) is an innovative consortium of fourteen community colleges and four-year institutions, and four Native American tribes in Colorado and the Four Corners region. The Alliance's mission is to double the number of historically and currently under-represented American Indian, African American, Hispanic and Pacific Islander students earning bachelor's degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM). CO-WY AMP is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, with Colorado State University as its headquarters
Other goals of CO-WY AMP include increasing the quality of education for these students and building the infrastructure for programs and activities that link public and private resources through structured funding and program development strategies. This program is not racially or gender exclusive.
