The House Appropriations Committee voted to provide $1 billion for the Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grant program, Title IV, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The appropriation would provide new federal resources for activities like science, technology, engineering, and math competitions, hands-on and field-based learning, and bringing high-quality STEM courses, to schools across the country.
The bill provides the largest source of support for STEM activities under the ESSA. A summary of the legislation can be found here.
