LeMoyne-Owen Receives Federal Grant For STEM Program

Congressman Steve Cohen and LeMoyne-Owen College President Johnnie B. Watson Friday announced the details of a three-year federal Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program (MSEIP) grant worth more than $700,000.

“As the only college in the state of Tennessee to be awarded this highly competitive grant, we’re thrilled and truly grateful for these crucial resources,” Watson said. “Science and technology are the driving forces behind jobs that emerge nearly every day in our country, and these funds will be used to prepare our students to successfully compete in the ever-evolving job market.”

LeMoyne-Owen will use the funds to lay a foundation for 12 sophomore students to improve their performance in the college’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program. Selected students will receive a stipend of up to $6,000 a year to defray normal educational expenses in an effort to reduce their work hours, thereby increasing the number of hours they can devote to their studies and community service.

The students also will be housed in a designated dormitory to encourage academic and professional camaraderie.

“This kind of dynamic goes on at Ivy League schools, where students develop close-knit working relationships that go beyond their college years and into their professional lives,” Watson said. “These enduring relationships serve to increase the likelihood of higher academic achievement and professional success.”
