ASEMS Veterans (ASEMS-V)

ASEMS Veterans (ASEMS-V) provides much of the same services as our existing ASEMS Programs (see below), but is aimed specifically at military veterans in STEM majors. Freshmen and community college transfer students are accepted. The ASEMS-V Program is a partnership between Arizona’s Science, Engineering, and Math Scholars (ASEMS) Program, the University of Arizona’s Veteran’s Education and Transition Services (https://vets.arizona.edu/), and Dr. Michael Marty.
