Lockheed Martin has given $90,000 to support the Tuskegee University Freshman Accelerated Start up and Training for Retention in Engineering Curricula program. Known as FASTREC, this eight-week program is offered to high school graduates interested in engineering careers.
Each summer, FASTREC students pursue an intensive course of study in mathematics, science, engineering, graphics, and freshman orientation. The program provides students with an early opportunity to begin their engineering career and earn up to seven credits toward a bachelor of science degree in engineering. The participants also are awarded full tuition and book scholarships for the program.
The Lockheed Martin donation will be used to fund tuition, scholarships, books and supplies.
