COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Science, technology, engineering, and math students now have an extra reason to be happy to be back on Columbus State University’s campus for fall classes.

CSU recently received a $133,000 grant to improve classroom strategies for STEM students and better prepare them for their careers.

The goal of this grant is to raise the region's standard of living through education and raise children out of poverty.

Funding will be used to award mini-grants to faculty for travel to conferences or workshops to learn about new techniques to bring back to the university.

Dr. Kimberly Grant with Columbus State University says this grant is going help in a number of ways.

“We are partnering with schools nearby, especially Muscogee County to be able to give workshops for professional development for our fabulous teachers. To give them that little push they need so they can spend more time and develop those lesson plans they need and share them with one another.”

CSU has received more than $3.1 million in STEM funding since 2011.
