Selected STEM Education Legislative Activity in the 112th Congress
Source: Congressional Research Service, via STEM Education Coalition
From the memorandum:
This general distribution memorandum summarizes selected legislative activities related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education—including legislation, hearings, and appropriations—in the 112th Congress.
Although STEM education programs and activities can be found across at least 15 federal agencies, most of the funding and programs are in three agencies: the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Education (ED), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Further, because almost all of the NIH funding is in a single specialized scholarship program that primarily supports biomedical students and researchers in higher education, this memorandum focuses on STEM education activities at NSF and ED. These two agencies provide much of the federal STEM education assistance for kindergarten-through-grade 12 (K-12) schools, students, and colleges.
