New Bill Would Provide STEM Grants to Rural Schools

Representative Travis Tranel (R-Cuba City) introduced Assembly Bill 799 on Friday, which creates a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) grant program for rural schools.

AB 799 would provide grants between $3,000 and $20,000 to schools with less than 1,000 students to establish, maintain, and expand educational programming related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  

In order to receive a STEM grant, a school must secure matching funds of at least 10% from a private or public entity.

AB 799 has been referred to the Assembly Committee on Mining and Rural Development.
