Western Washington University is one of 24 institutions in the country selected by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Inclusive Excellence Program to receive a five year, $1 million grant to enhance student success in STEM fields, especially those students typically under-represented in the natural sciences. 

The award to WWU was the result of a national-level competition, with a pool of more than 500 applicants from competing institutions, and is the only grant awarded to an institution in the Pacific Northwest.
