Surf the pipeline to stem success grant

Surf The Pipeline To STEM Success (Pipeline) is an innovative endeavor by Arizona Western College (AWC) and Northern Arizona University-Yuma Branch Campus (NAU) to increase the number of Hispanic and low-income students attaining Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) degrees in Southwest Arizona.  The U.S. Department of Education awarded AWC $4 million over a five year time period from 2011-2016 to complete all of the program objectives.

The Pipeline Grant's primary mission is to create pathway's for AWC students to receive their Associates of Applied Science Degree (AAS)  in Automotive, Welding or Industrial Technology (75 credit hours) and transfer to NAU-Yuma to achieve a Bachelor's of Applied Science Degree (BAS) in Industrial Technology Management (45 credit hours).  The Pipeline Grant also has significant funds to renovate the AWC automotive and welding labs to provide students with a state-of-the-art technology experience.
