Texas Woman's University landed a five-year grant of nearly $1 million from the National Science Foundation to help increase retention of students studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics. 

The grant will specifically help the TWU Scholarships, Teams and Research project, which works to increase undergraduate engagement, retention and graduation in STEM fields. 

The grant will fund scholarship support for 75 students, according to a news release from U.S. Sen. John Cornyn's office. 

"Our world's increasing reliance on technology and data means strong STEM-focused minds will continue to be in high demand, and we should give Texans in these fields every advantage to succeed," Cornyn, R-Texas, said in the release.
