High School STEM Certification

The need for early opportunities to gain valuable training and education in key STEM occupations is becoming more critical.  Students need access to necessary training to gain early employment and companies are in desperate need for STEM talent.

The High School STEM Certification Program provides resources to schools and districts to create new or expand capacity on existing STEM certification pathways that address high demand STEM jobs in their communities.

These certifications can include resources such as much-needed equipment or supplies, support for the creation of new curriculum materials and activities that support hands-on, engaged instruction, support for internships and professional development for educators to enhance instruction in these new or existing certification pathways. The STEM Certification program is grant-based and any Local Education Agency is eligible to apply for funding.
