Fort Bliss, School Leaders to Announce Up to $402,700 Awarded For National STEM Program at Andress and El Dorado High Schools

Leadership from Fort Bliss, El Paso ISD and Socorro ISD will announce a new partnership with an evidence-based, rigorous national STEM program. This is thanks to up to $402,700 in grant funding from the U.S. Department of Defense. The grant amount is based on the number of students and teachers who participate and other factors. The two events, which will include military families and students, are for a two-year College Readiness Program from the National Math and Science Initiative that’s being implemented at Andress and El Dorado high schools. As a nonprofit whose mission is to advance STEM education so all students, especially those furthest from opportunity, can reach their highest potential, NMSI has served more than 250 U.S. schools that have significant enrollment among military-connected students.
