The Program for Engineering Access, Retention, and LIATS Success (PEARLS) is a college-wide initiative sponsored by the National Science Foundation and enabled through the project “Recruiting, Retaining, and Engaging Academically Talented Students from Economically Disadvantaged Groups into a Pathway to Successful Engineering Careers“, directed at helping bachelor’s and master’s level students in all engineering disciplines to successfully complete their study programs and transition into professional life.
Engineering PEARLS complements students’ education with individualized career mentoring, soft-skills training, research opportunities, internship/COOP experiences, and peer-mentor activities; integrated in a learning community where students, faculty, and university staff work together for a common goal: student success.
Students with economic need can receive the Engineering PEARLS Scholarship, providing up to $15,000 to undergraduates and up to $13,200 to master’s students through their program tenure. Want to learn more? Visit our office at S-219. The opportunity awaits!
