The Dr. Frank S. Greene Scholars Program is an innovative program that supports a community of college-bound Scholars who are focused on developing their academic gifts in science and math. GSP's purpose is to increase the number of African American youth choosing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) career paths.
