Scholars Academy and University of Houston-Downtown

Innovative Seminar Course Model for Underrepresented Freshman/New Transfer Undergraduates in Math and Science

The UHD Scholars Academy is an academically competitive scholarship and mentoring program which supports gifted minority and female students, first-time-in-college (FTIC) students, first generation students and transfer students pursuing bachelor’s degrees in science, engineering, technology, mathematics, and computer science (STEM) fields. In part, some of the Scholars Academy student success arises from two seminar courses offered for freshmen (CSP FTIC) and new transfers (CSP Transfers).
