The Carl R. Ice College of Engineering's Scholars Assisting Scholars tutoring program has received the 2023 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the largest and oldest diversity and inclusion publication in higher education.

This award honors institutions that encourage and assist students from underrepresented groups to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The college's Scholars Assisting Scholars program will be featured, along with 79 other recipients, in the September 2023 issue of the publication.

"We know that many STEM programs are not always recognized for their success, dedication, and mentorship for underrepresented students," said Lenore Pearlstein, owner and publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. "We want to honor the schools and organizations that have created programs that inspire and encourage young people who may currently be in or are interested in a future career in STEM. We are proud to honor these programs as role models to other institutions of higher education and beyond."

Inspiring Programs in STEM Award winners were selected by INSIGHT Into Diversity based on efforts to inspire and encourage a new generation of young people to consider careers in STEM through mentoring, teaching, research, and successful programs and initiatives.

Scholars Assisting Scholars is a free tutoring service held in the Burns & McDonnell Collaborative Learning Lab in Engineering Hall. View hours and more information.
