Welcome to the INVESTING NOW Program

INVESTING NOW, created in 1988, is a college preparatory program created to stimulate, support, and recognize the high academic performance of pre-college students from groups that are historically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics majors and careers. The purpose of the program is to ensure that participants are well prepared for matriculation at the University of Pittsburgh.

The primary goals are to:

1) create a pipeline for well-prepared students to enter college and pursue science, technology, engineering and math majors

2) encourage and support students’ enrollment and achievement in advanced mathematics and science courses

3) ensure that the participants make informed college choices

4) support and encourage parents in their role as advocates for their children

5) coordinate partnerships between the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering and local schools.   

Annually, approximately 180 students participate in INVESTING NOW activities.  Student participants attend quarterly advising sessions, tutoring, hands-on science and engineering workshops, college planning sessions and career awareness activities.
