Surf the pipeline to stem success grant
Surf the Pipeline to STEM Success (Pipeline) is a federally funded 5 year grant program whose primary mission is to increase the number of Hispanic and low-income students attaining STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) AAS degrees at AWC and transferring to NAU- Yuma to earn a BAS degree in Industrial Technology Management. Pipeline funds were used to create the pathway to a CTE (Career and Technical Education) based BAS (Bachelors of Applied Science) business degree locally (through NAU-Yuma). Included in the grant program was the renovation of the outdated Automotive and Welding facilities thus bringing them up to date and outfitting them with the latest technology in the field.
