PRISM: Proactive Recruitment in Introductory Science and Mathematics

In 2010, the National Science Foundation named Texas Tech University as recipient of one of three PRISM awards (award no. 1035096). The Texas Tech University instance of the PRISM initiative utilizes integrated biomathematics research experiences for students entering their last year of high school or the first two years of undergraduate study at Texas Tech University. Participants participate in a faculty-led summer research experience and receive a summer stipend of $1,200. Participants enrolled full-time at Texas Tech University as math or science majors also receive $3,000 in scholarship funding for their freshman and sophomore years.

The Texas Tech University PRISM Initiative is broken into two programs: the Pre-College Research PRISM (PRE-PRISM) Program, and the PRISM Scholars Program. PRE-PRISM Scholars participate during the summer between their junior and senior year of high school, and they automatically receive preferred admission status for the PRISM Scholars Program which targets Texas Tech freshmen and sophomores majoring in mathematics or biology.

For your convenience, pages outlining the requirements and benefits of the two programs have been linked from the graphics below. Please take a moment to explore these exciting opportunities, and feel free to contact the PRISM coordination team if you have additional questions.
