Grants & Awards

Achievement gaps in STEM education limit opportunities for underrepresented Californians to pursue careers in science and technology and impede the ability of California’s institutions of higher education to meet regional and statewide demand for a STEM–educated workforce. The Learning Lab supports faculty and institutions of higher education that seek to demonstrate innovative and scalable approaches to closing equity and achievement gaps in STEM and improving learning outcomes in online and hybrid courses through the use of learning science and educational technologies.

Current Awarded Projects

The Learning Lab is currently funding several projects to improve undergraduate STEM gateway courses across California’s public higher education segments. A high-level summary of awarded projects can be found in the PDFs and more information may be found on each team's project page (see below). Please note that projects may be categorized under multiple disciplines.
