Bridges Across Texas – Lois Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation

The Bridges Across Texas (BAT) partnership is funded by the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) grant program through the National Science Foundation (NSF). TSC is working with Texas Tech University, Dallas College, South Plains College, and the University of North Texas at Dallas to provide programs, resources, and academic advising, tutoring, mentoring, social and peer support to students pursuing a STEM degree.  Some scholars will have the opportunity to become a paid mentor/tutor to provide support to future STEM students and to promote a STEM community.
