STEM Excellence Initiative

 
"It is imperative that we build resources for STEM programs and initiatives that will take us into the future and allow us to support student success in STEM disciplines."
                                          - Dr. Thomas Fallo, President El Camino College
 

STEM Excellence Fund

 
We invite you to partner with us to strengthen and enhance the many STEM education programs and opportunities we offer students as they explore, excel, transfer and graduate to take their places in STEM fields and careers critical to the needs of our community and workforce. Ongoing expenses and changing technology make STEM programs expensive to sustain.  Your donations will help:
  • Maintain and preserve equipment in all fields of science, technology, robotics, automation and engineering
  • Update and replace laboratory equipment
  • Enhance STEM curriculum and increase training to keep up to date on current trends
  • Provide outreach in STEM disciplines to K-12 schools in our local area to create a pathway to El Camino College
 

STEM Endowment Fund

 
The Endowment for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Student Support Services was created to fund programs and projects that directly support students pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) certificates, degrees, or transfer plans.  Matching funds are available for every dollar donated from the El Camino College HSI STEM grant. Earnings from the endowment will be used to support projects that directly support STEM students at El Camino College which may include:
  • STEM equipment (new and replacement) and associated installation and structural modification costs
  • STEM technology upgrades, hardware, and software and associated installation or training costs
  • STEM events on campus, such as summer institutes, conferences and speaker series, associated training costs for faculty and staff
  • STEM student events off campus such as conferences and associated registration, travel, food, and accommodation costs
Double your giving impact and leave a lasting legacy by taking advantage of matching funds for the STEM Endowment available through 2016.
