Georgia Tech has received a $5 million private grant to promote science, technology, engineering and math among Hispanic students.
The Goizueta Foundation is providing the grant for Georgia Tech to encourage Hispanic K-12 students to get involved in those fields.
Georgia Tech President G. P. "Bud" Peterson says the school has a longstanding commitment to attracting young people to those fields. He says the school looks forward to expanding opportunities for K-12 Hispanic students through new programs.
The five-year grant will support and enhance the GoSTEM research-based model and will demonstrate how technological universities and school systems can partner to promote academic achievement.
