STEM+C Competition Team Grant Program established. Establishes the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Computing (STEM+C) Competition Team Grant Program to encourage interest in STEM+C-related subject areas and support STEM+C-related extracurricular team-building activities in public schools in the Commonwealth by providing grants for use in establishing or supporting STEM+C competition teams. Read the Bill »


The fiscal impact statement indicates that the additional cost for the STEM+C Competition Team Grant Program and Fund cannot be determined as it depends on the amount of funding appropriated by the General Assembly. However, for reference, Item 124 of HB/SB30 in the 2024 General Assembly Session appropriates $200,000 per year for STEM Competition Team grants with a maximum award of $5,000. If these funds are repurposed for the STEM+C Competition Grants, budget language would need to be amended.
