Beginning in 2009, several exciting
new programs designed to recruit, retain, and graduate more science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM) majors have been implemented at NJCU. Due to the
shortage of STEM professionals, career opportunities exist at all academic
to see other funding
opportunities for STEM majors at NJCU.
The USDA is funding
research/internship opportunities at NJCU, and all students in the sciences are
encouraged to apply. Students interested in the program can contact Dr. William
Montgomery at email@example.com.
