About Project RAISE

Project RAISE, a regional alliance in STEM education, is a Department of Education Title III HSI-STEM grant awarded to CSUF beginning October 1, 2016. Project RAISE integrates a variety of services and project components to increase the number of Hispanic and low-income STEM students and increase persistence, retention, and graduation rates among participants.
