Title: Pre-freshman enrichment program. Final report, June 15, 1993--June 30, 1994

Abstract

Murray State College`s PREP project completed both funded years including two four week summer sessions and two winter components each year. A total of 48 students were selected to participate in the project (24 each year). A total of 47 students completed the project for the two-year funding period (24 students the first year and 23 the second). One hundred percent (100%) of the first year`s student group represented underrepresented populations in science based careers, and 95.8% of the second year`s group met the underrepresented criteria. A follow-up study conducted during the months of April and May, 1995, revealed that 46 of the 47 students were enrolled in both a math and science course in the fall 1994/spring 1995 school year. One student was not contacted due to a change in address. The student was under the supervision of foster parents through the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Attempts to locate the student were unsuccessful. In the opinion of the writer, all PREP project objectives were achieved with the exception of the first goal: To motivate project participants to pursue courses in high school leading to careers in mathematics, science and engineering. The objective must be evaluated over the seven yearmore » period addressed in the proposal.« less
