To support STEM education, the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) Lt. Governors’ STEM Scholarship Program will award up to $1,000 to 12 schools in 12 states and territories to support STEM-related programming, projects, equipment, curriculum and other endeavors. The application period is open until March 15, and scholarship applications are welcome from pre-K – 12th grade.

“As the lieutenant governor and the highest elected educator in the Commonwealth, I know that our future workforce is in our classrooms today,” said Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman. “Many of our recent economic development announcements will require significant technical skills and we must prepare our students for these opportunities.”

Applications should be submitted by a teacher or project supervisor for STEM-related expenses by March 15. Funding will be awarded directly to chosen schools in spring 2024, with receipt of the funding to be acknowledged by the school within 90 days.
