The Arizona's Science, Engineering, and Math Scholars (ASEMS) program provides services to support students in graduating with a STEM major. This program focuses on promising students who are underrepresented in STEM, especially students who are first in their family to attend college, from low-income households, who transferred from a community college, and from underrepresented groups, such as women and minorities.

TRiO ASEMS and ASEMS-T applications for  the 2017/18 school year are now open! Click HERE for more info.

Program’s goals:
  • Students will interact easily and frequently with STEM faculty and STEM peers.

  • Students will develop knowledge-based skills to be competitive academically and professionally in STEM fields.

  • Students will identify a chosen STEM career early, will be able to clearly articulate their motivations for selecting their chosen career, and will be prepared to pursue that career.

Program’s impact:
  • 88% of ASEM Scholars are still in a STEM major by their junior year

  • 95% of ASEM Scholars who have graduated earned a degree in STEM

  • Approximately half of those who have graduated are pursuing graduate school or professional school


This is a competitive program. Space is limited.

The ASEMS Committee will review and approve applications on a rolling basis until all spots are filled.
