Welcome to Connect with Science

Connect with Science is a program designed to promote opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The program’s goal is to increase the number of students completing their science, technology, engineering and mathematics degree.  We acknowledge the support provided by the National Science Foundation’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program under grant DUE-0431517.


Why Choose Buffalo State?

Because here, as a freshman, you’ll be taught by Ph.D. professors instead of graduate students. You’ll be in a lecture class with 40 instead of 400. Your teachers will actually know you by name. And most importantly, you’ll get to do research as a freshman or sophomore, which is rare at other colleges.


A Scholarship for You
