© 2019. Promoting STEM for Underrepresented Minorities.

Our Vision

The Partnership for Education and the Advancement of Quantum and nanoSystems (PEAQS) seeks to promote diversity in the STEM fields by supporting underrepresented minority students across partnering institutions. PEAQS has enlisted experts in the area of materials science to offer mentorship and research experiences aligned with three thrusts that will bolster participants with the skills, training and confidence needed to complete STEM degrees, and go on to work in STEM careers and/or pursue graduate studies.


Students working on our PEAQS projects have an opportunity to apply for a scholarship funded by the National Science Foundation that will fund their trip to the Material Research Society Fall Meeting and Exhibition and present their research. This is a great opportunity for our undergraduate and graduate students working in our labs.
