“In order to meet current and future workforce development demands, STEM education must begin early,” said Dr. Cynthia Pulkowski, Executive Director of ASSET STEM Education. “To prepare our most vulnerable students, we hope more businesses and corporations will invest in these students through ASSET’s STEM Scholarship Program.”
Through the STEM Scholarship Program, ASSET has provided more than 1,500 hours of professional development and 120 hands-on STEM classroom kits to educators. During its first two rounds, the STEM Scholarship Program has impacted:
- 28 schools and programs
- 265 educators
- 6,000 students
Any school district, private or charter school or educational organization may apply for a scholarship. The application deadline is Friday, May 29. Applications and scholarships will be reviewed and rewarded as received. Priority will be given to organizations with a high percentage of students on free/reduced lunch, high levels of diversity and low proficiency on state assessments.
