This grant supports an initiative at Georgia State University (GSU) to create an innovative program designed to further the recruitment, persistence, and progression of Black, Indigenous, and Latina/o undergraduates into quantitative science graduate programs around the nation.  Created in partnership with the National Math Alliance, the “Math Path Program” is comprised of numerous components.  The program will include a structured math mentoring program that will automatically opt-in all first-year GSU math students.  First-year majors in math-heavy disciplines like statistics or physics will also be invited and encouraged to participate, with a particular focus on including Black, Indigenous, and Latina/o students. GSU will also launch a summer internship program, develop a series of mentored math teams for second-year students, work with the National Math Alliance to develop programming that facilitates the graduate application process, and create a graduate school “transition grant” that will defray site visits, moving costs, and other expenses for students who apply and attend STEM graduate programs.  Partnering with GSU in the effort are a series of graduate programs at Arizona State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, and Purdue University, who collectively offer a diverse variety of graduate programs where GSU students may choose to continue their education.
