IL Congressman launches #STEMScholar program for 10th CD

Are you a junior or senior in high school? Do you live in the 10th CD? If so, you could be selected to be a part of Congressman Brad Schneider’s brand new STEM Scholar program.

Schneider will be joining the effort to encourage STEM careers similar to the one 14th CD Congressman Randy Hultgren has been hosting for the past several years.

From Congressman Schneider’s website HERE:


The Illinois Tenth Congressional District STEM Scholar Program is an exciting new educational opportunity launched by Congressman Brad Schneider for high school students in our community. Theprogram aims to connect highly-motivated students interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with hands-on learning experiences throughout our district.

Beginning this fall, students selected to participate in the STEM Scholars program will have the opportunity to join Congressman Schneider on visits to four STEM-related businesses and facilities during the 2018-2019 school year. On these visits, students will have the chance to participate in discussions with local employees, business owners, and educators, and learn more about the STEM career opportunities in our backyard.
