The National STEM Scholarship Database Act would direct the Secretary of Education to establish and maintain a public website through which individuals may find a complete database of available scholarships, fellowships, and other programs of financial assistance in the study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Rep. Rush Holt speaks in favor of the bill, which he sponsored:
|Rep. Rush Holt (NJ-12):
“If we could, through this inexpensive method, encourage eight or 10 or 12 more students to go into science that would be wonderful. Instead I expect that we will get hundreds, if not thousands who will find their way into these critical fields because of the existence of a database that gives them a place to start as they look to their future.”
