About Project RAISE
Project RAISE integrates a variety of services and project components to increase the number of Hispanic/Latinx/a/o/e and low-income STEM students and increase persistence, retention, and graduation rates among participants.
Project RAISE is funded through Project RAISER, a regional alliance in STEM education refined, a U.S. Department of Education Title III HSI-STEM grant awarded to CSUF beginning October 1, 2021. That grant is expected to end September 30, 2026.
