The Queens (NY) Chronicle (1/16, McRae) reported Preethi Radhakrishnan, an assistant professor of biology at LaGuardia Community College has been awarded a grant to help develop a program to encourage women to pursue STEM careers. The college has begun an initiative that will include workshops, research internships and scholarships. “The first two years of a college career are considered key predictors of whether students will pursue a major in STEM fields,” Radhakrishnan said. “This grant will increase women entering STEM fields, gaining research experience and in successfully graduating with a STEM degree in hand.”
