Indiana’s efforts to recruit more teachers into the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields received a major boost with the announcement of $9.7 million in funding from the state’s new STEM Teacher Recruitment Fund. Approved by the 2013 General Assembly. The grant program encourages the recruitment and retention of teachers in STEM fields. More than 115,000 new STEM jobs are projected for Indiana by 2018, with 40 percent requiring postsecondary education leading to an associate’s degree, and 60% requiring a four-year degree.
