The College Board is thrilled to announce the AP STEM Access program, an initiative created to increase the number of traditionally underrepresented minority and female high school students that participate in Advanced Placement® (AP) courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines. A $5 million grant made from Google as part of their Global Impact Awards to DonorsChoose.org will enable public high schools across the country to start approximately 500 new AP math and science courses and to encourage traditionally underrepresented minority (black/African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Hispanic/Latino) and female students who demonstrate strong academic potential to enroll and explore these areas of study and related careers.
Due to popular demand, parking passes will be included in the packets of all participants during the institute. Participants will be given directions as to which parking lots that parking is permitted in.
