Case Study


The Nudelman Family Trust

The Nudelman Family Trust fully sponsored and supported the “One Thousand Full Scholarship Initiative in 2019” and “ Six Hundred Full Scholarship Program for 2022”. These programs offered talented youth the opportunity to participate in DMA’s STEAM courses, developing their ability to work in the field. Fifty percent of these scholarships were awarded to female applicants.

 

“We were very happy with the results of DMA’s sponsorship program and repeated it in 2022” – Lisa Nudelman – Nudelman Family Trust


Excerpts from Stanford University Graduate School of Education study about the “Students’ Perceptions and Attitudes Toward Digital Media Academy and STEM Fields”

By Xavier J. Monroe, Anthony Muro Villa III, Karla Lomelí, Greses A. Pérez-Jöhnk, Daniel L. Schwartz, PhD, Bryan A. Brown, PhD

November 22, 2019


“Descriptively, the findings suggest that students who received a scholarship had a slightly higher shift in their perceptions and attitudes toward digital media technology. Further, findings also suggest that students who received a scholarship started the summer camp with higher positive attitudes towards digital media technology and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Second, the results also descriptively suggest that students generally had a positive experience at the camp and would most likely pursue similar opportunities in the future. Overall, the scholarship students felt that the camp provided them access to meaningful learning experiences that made use of high quality technology and software.”

“...data suggests that students who did receive a scholarship exhibited slightly larger interest in STEM and digital media technology before beginning the program and maintained that level of interest at the end of their camp experience.” “To summarize, students appreciated the opportunity to engage with digital media technology and STEM, particularly on the campus of Stanford University. When taken in totality, both the survey and focus groups suggest that students had a positive experience with the camp. This is reflected in markers around students’ interest, engagement, abilities and attitudes toward STEM and digital media.”
