STEM is an interdisciplinary curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific subjects – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – integrated into a cohesive unit of study based on real-world applications.
The NEA says, “If the United States is to hold a competitive edge in a rapidly changing global workforce, bolstering the nation’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce is essential.”
National Debt Relief supports this effort and wants to encourage students to pursue careers in these fields to bolster our future economic prosperity. NDR is a company dedicated to helping individuals and families rid their lives of burdensome debt.
Since STEM lessons focus on using science, math, and technology to solve a problem, how about using STEM to solve the nation’s $1+ trillion dollar student loan crisis? In response to this question, National Debt Relief will award five scholarships of $1,000 each to outstanding college students pursuing studies in STEM for 2019-20.
