UWM WiscAMP STEM Inspire Program

Funded by the Louis Stokes Alliance on Minority Participation Grant through National Science Foundation, the UWM WiscAMP STEM Inspire Program, is designed to support scholars’ academic achievement, increase exposure to STEM activities, and strengthen connections with STEM faculty and staff.
