About Raise

Project RAISE, a regional alliance in STEM education, is a Department of Education Title III HSI-STEM grant awarded to CSUF beginning October 1, 2016. Project RAISE integrates a variety of services and project components to increase the number of Hispanic and low-income STEM students and increase persistence, retention, and graduation rates among participants.

Students can engage in:

  • Undergraduate Research Program (URE), an 8-week summer research experience guided by CSUF faculty
  • RAISE Transfer Program (RTP), a peer advising and academic support program for students who transfer to CSUF
  • Summer Internship Program (SIP), a summer internship program for RTP participants, in collaboration with the Orange County Business Council
  • Outreach visits to CSUF for presentations and lab tours

Community college and campus partners:

  • Participate in advisory board meetings three times a year to discuss grant objectives and activities
  • Attend the annual STEM articulation conference to clarify transferring procedures
  • Collaborate with Project RAISE staff to host workshops on community college campuses


Transferology Logo Home Link

 As STEM curricula are extremely hierarchical, it is important for community college students to complete STEM prerequisites needed to advance toward a bachelor’s degree before transferring. Project RAISE hopes to assist community college students to determine for themselves which courses will transfer to CSUF STEM degrees. 

Transferology will empower Project RAISE community college students by giving them immediate, free access to the information they need to determine whether their courses will transfer. Member institutions, including CSUF, provide articulation information and catalog descriptions on their course offerings to Transferology.
