Scholarship Description: Through funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF HRD 0929268), the Alabama Alliance for Students with Disabilities in STEM (AASD-STEM) Minigrants program supports interventions at colleges and universities in Alabama that aim to increase the number of students with disabilities completing associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The AASD-STEM Minigrants support innovative research studies contributing to the knowledge base by evaluating disparities in disability diagnosis in Alabama or investigating differences in secondary and post secondary STEM learning and in the educational experiences that influence enrollment, interest, academic performance, retention, degree completion, and career choices of students with disabilities in STEM. Projects may include student interventions if the findings from the intervention would substantially answer the questions posed within the context of theory and hypotheses. It is expected that the findings will be published and/or reported at conferences.
