All of Guam’s schools, K through 12, are invited to apply for the first annual STEM education scholarship program.

Through this program, the National Lieutenant Governors Association, sponsored by ACT, will award up to $1,000 to 12 schools nationally to support STEM-related activities for youth.

Lieutenant Governor Josh Tenorio expressed, “By supporting STEM-related activities in schools across the country, we can encourage a long-term interest and passion in STEM education in America’s youth while building the workforce of the future.”

The U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics projects that jobs in STEM are to double in demand than the total of all other occupations in this decade.

Teachers or project advisors in state-accredited public, private, or tribal K-12 schools may apply for the scholarship to further STEM education through a project, equipment, program, or curriculum.

The eligibility requirements state that funding must be used for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics educational opportunities.
