About Austin STEM Pre-freshman Enrichment Program (AuSPREP)

Austin STEM Pre-freshman Enrichment Program (AuSPREP) at Huston-Tillotson University originated as one of the Texas Pre-freshman Engineering Programs (TexPREP) located on college campuses in Texas. PREP was founded to identify high achieving middle and high school students with the potential and interest in becoming scientists and engineers and to reinforce them in the pursuit of these fields. TexPREP began in 1979 at the University of Texas at San Antonio under the leadership of Dr. Manuel Berriozabal and has been recognized nationally for preparing students for college engineering and science studies.

AusPREP will not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, sex, color, age, handicap, or national origin in selecting students for participation nor in the administration of this project. AuSPREP strongly encourages women and students from groups who have been traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields to apply for participation.
