Stop the Consolidation of STEM Education Funding! -
The proposed FY14 budget will consolidate federal K-12 STEM education funding from 50+ agencies into only three: the National Science Foundation, Department of Education, and Smithsonian. Under the proposed budget, K-12 programs at the National Institutes of Health – including the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) will be ELIMINATED.
Now, a glimmer of good news: at the recent NIH/SEPA Program Directors’ meeting, there was widespread agreement that this decision can still be reversed. But it will take congressional action (e.g. a budget amendment) to make it happen. You can help by signing this petition!
