APS Foundation is tackling a new focus with the new year: Arizona student performance in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, commonly referred to as STEM.
The private, grant-making charity will support programs that improve STEM learning by awarding grants twice a year, in May and November. A majority of the funding will go to teachers.
“In order for Arizona to be competitive in the global economy, the state’s workforce must be competent in core STEM skills,” said Tammy McLeod, Vice President of the APS Foundation. “A workforce proficient in these skills is critical to retaining and attracting high-quality businesses and industries.”
