Ann Arbor — A $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation is expected to support efforts at the University of Michigan to educate a diverse group of science, math and engineering students.

The Ann Arbor school on Thursday announced the five-year grant will establish the M-STEM Academies at U-M. The school says it will expand current efforts to attract a more diverse group of undergraduates into the science, technology, engineering and mathematics — or STEM — disciplines.

The effort aims to increase the number of undergraduates with degrees in those fields. It’s described as a high school to college transition program.
