The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a $5 million grant to the Seattle Colleges and Seattle University for Ready! Set! Transfer! 2.0 (RST 2.0)—Scholarships in Science Technology Engineering and Math (S-STEM). The grant builds on the successes of the original RST grant that the Seattle Colleges received from the NSF in 2010.

The new grant will include $1 million in STEM scholarships for each of the three Seattle colleges and will have a special focus on STEM students beginning their educational journeys in developmental math. The award is significant—very few community college partnerships in the country are expected to be funded at the $5 million level (the maximum grant size).

Dear Campus,

Almost one year has passed since the Aurora Bridge bus accident that tragically killed five of our students and injured dozens more, just as they were beginning their academic journey at our campus. We will be dedicating a monument and new “World Community Garden” on campus to celebrate the lives of these students in perpetuity. The monument will be dedicated during a remembrance ceremony on Friday, Sept. 23, from 2 to 3 p.m. on the North Seattle College campus in the south courtyard (outside of the old cafeteria.)
