Known as “HSI STEM at STCC,” the Hispanic and Low Income Transformed Education in STEM (HiLITES) project is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The program aims to increase the percentage of Hispanic and low-income students entering, progressing, completing and transferring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
STCC is a federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution, which means the college is eligible to apply for $2.75 million in federal grants to benefit all of its students. To be eligible, colleges must prove that at least 25 percent of full-time equivalent students are Hispanic.
