Federal STEM grants reach $279 million for 2018

from EdScoop

The Department of Education has announced that $279 million in discretionary grants to support the sciences have been awarded to organizations nationwide in 2018, surpassing the $200 million minimum in science, technology, engineering and math investment mandated by President Donald Trump last year. The announcement highlighted 10 programs awarded discretionary funding by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who told a national conference audience that technology should be more widely embraced in schools. The grants were largely focused on improving tech access for students and teachers. The programs and organizations funded were split between educator-training programs that help teachers build technology literacy and efforts to increase student opportunities in non-traditional STEM environments such as technical schools or alternative degree programs. more
