Grant available for Advanced Career courses in STEM fields

11/13/2017

Ohio high schools and career-tech centers can apply for $10,000 competitive grants to implement Advanced Career pathways in STEM fields during the 2018-2019 school year. Ohio and its partners – the Southern Regional Education Board’s High Schools That Work and a consortium of states – developed several career-tech programs aligned to the 21st-century workplace in multiple pathways. The grant must be used to implement new Advanced Career pathway curricula. A current grant recipient can apply for an additional grant to develop a new curriculum but cannot use grant money for programs it is currently implementing.
 
To take advantage of this funding opportunity and adopt an Advanced Career curriculum, complete and email the response form, posted here, to Dan Stacy by Dec. 31, 2017. Please attach to the response form a description of the pathway your school has selected and how you plan to implement the course offerings. Responding schools must sign a memorandum of understanding outlining their commitment to training and other program requirements. Direct questions to Dan Stacy at (614) 644-6325.
