Rhode Island MESA Program at URI Feinstein College Will Target Students in Urban Areas
Jun 21, 2021 | Rhode Island – Rhode Island has become the ninth state in the country to have a MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement) chapter that will focus on underrepresented students from middle and high schools in urban and urban ring areas in Rhode Island, who are typically from low-income families and attend low-performing schools with few resources.
The Rhode Island MESA partnership was announced at the annual MESA USA National Engineering Design Challenge on June 21 and 22.
The program titled RI-MESA, will be housed on the Feinstein Providence campus in the Shepard building, and will be partially funded through the Feinstein College and URI. Additional funding will come from corporate and community partners.
