During a STEM education briefing, the Department reported strong progress in implementing the Administration’s five-year STEM education strategy, including building on more than $819 million in STEM investments during fiscal years 2018 and 2019.
“I’m grateful to President Trump for making STEM education a priority and for putting America’s students and her workforce first.”
These STEM education investments deliver on President Trump’s commitment to help expand opportunities in high-demand STEM careers and achieve the overall vision and goals of the five-year federal STEM education strategic plan, titled Charting A Course For Success: America’s Strategy for STEM Education.
Several of the STEM investments support the Administration’s Opportunity Zones Initiative, which fosters economic development and job creation in economically distressed communities.
