The Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded a total of $40 million to four major universities and minority-serving institutions to establish new research centers of excellence as part of its Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority-serving Institutions (HBCU/MI) Research and Education Program.

Women in tech

NASA has awarded seven Women’s Colleges and Universities (WCUs) $5 million in funding to research and develop strategies that increase retention of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) degree programs and careers.

Late last month, the Department of Education and NASA signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) intended to strengthen the collaboration between the two agencies. The agencies pledged to work more closely on their joint efforts to increase access to high-quality science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and space education to students and schools across the nation.

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is offering a series of workshops aimed at helping educators better understand and teach science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines.


New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed new legislation that will incentivize public school STEM teachers to participate in an existing grant program, as well as ensure that nonpublic school students have access to STEM education.
