The Health Sciences and Technology Academy, known as HSTA, is a one-of-a-kind mentoring program in the state of West Virginia that helps participating high school students enter and succeed in STEM-based undergraduate and graduate degree programs. HSTA marshals the efforts of hundreds of mentors―teachers, community members, higher-education faculty and staff, and the HSTA participants themselves―through a framework that supports students facing social and financial challenges to obtaining a diploma and moving on to college.
HSTA’s accomplishments in West Virginia are exceptional. This far-reaching mentoring infrastructure gives hundreds of community leaders the opportunity to improve STEM education, college graduation rates, and health and wellness across the state. And thousands of young West Virginians now have the tools they need to continue their education and make a better life for themselves, their families, and their home communities.
