$50K for STEM curriculum grant for UNLV

Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement emphasizing the need to continue fully funding programs by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which awarded a grant to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) of $50,000 to help improve STEM curriculum for students in K-12 education:

"Instead of making deep cuts to the NSF, the President's budget should instead focus on expanding opportunities for Nevada students by investing in programs that give our children the best STEM curriculum at a young age. This grant is a smart investment in Nevada's future and will prepare students for our 21st century global economy. That's why I will work hard to ensure our fair share of federal funding."

BACKGROUND: The NSF awards will help improve STEM curriculum, learning methods, and provide students with the skills to become programmers, freelancers, entrepreneurs, and other professionals requiring a certain level of technology sophistication.

Lower interest rates on student debt

Jacky supports making higher education more affordable, whether that be advanced skills-training, apprenticeship programs, community college, or a college degree. She'll work to lower interest rates on student debt, make tuition affordable for working families, and ensure that students have access to the education that will prepare them for the jobs of the future.
