What a year of growth and impact it has been!

STEM to Stern has spread to 25 programs across the country and is creating a more diverse pipeline of athletes into the sport. This year, numerous clubs have graduated kids from their STEM to Stern program up to their high school team. With USRowing as a partner, STEM to Stern is poised for continued growth and success.

At the catch. Ready all. Row!

The STEM to Stern program uses rowing to bring people together across racial and socioeconomic boundaries. By creating diverse rowing teams, we foster relationships that change lives and improve society. In a country as divided as it is, STEM to Stern is a program that shows what is possible when we come together.


It is important for clubs to see themselves as part of the communities they represent.  This includes everyone, regardless of race, socioeconomic status or zip-code.  STEM to Stern removes the main barriers that currently keep many people from accessing rowing teams. By addressing transportation, swimming and academics, we ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate and succeed on and off the water. 


Clubs that grow in size and diversity increase their level of speed and relevance in their community. With additional athletes competing for spots in boats, your team will have more rowers pushing each other and bringing the best out of each other. STEM to Stern facilitates this environment of competition by adding new athletes to your crew.

Support goes to making sure kids have what they need
