Collaborative Research: Florida IT Graduation Attainment Pathways (Flit-Gap)

The S-STEM Track 3 Flit-GAP (Florida IT Graduation Attainment Pathways) project is a collaborative effort among Florida International University (FIU), University of Central Florida (UCF) and University of South Florida (USF) to recruit, retain, and guide to success (graduate and help find a professional pathway) academically talented, financially challenged students in the computing disciplines.

Building on the S-STEM Florida IT Pathways to Success (Flit-Path), project activities include tutoring for foundation courses; specialized academic advising; faculty, industry, and peer mentoring; professional pathway experiences (research, internship, entrepreneurship) to each scholar; and a hybrid (physical-virtual) learning community that spans the three institutions.
