The National Science Foundation has awarded a $900,000 grant to Maricopa Community Colleges. The Advanced Technology Education grant is designed to support the district’s High Tech Workforce Initiative. This is the second grant NSF has awarded the Maricopa colleges in support of this initiative. According to a press release, “Over the course of the three-year grant, the High Tech Workforce Initiative is expected to connect faculty members with organizations developing or adopting emerging technologies to develop and deliver timely curriculum that prepares the technology workforce. The grant also supports the deployment of comprehensive outreach efforts designed to attract youth and young adults to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) based education and careers.”
