Grand Valley State University is the recipient of a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The money is dedicated to a new project assisting high performing, low-income students pursuing degrees in science or engineering programs.
GVSU has created a program called Retaining and Inspiring students in Science and Engineering. On campus, it’s better known as RISE. The university will assist approximately 50 low-income students pursuing science or engineering degrees who may not be able to afford a college education.
