Florida Chamber of Commerce: Link Bright Futures and STEM

From the Florida Chamber of Commerce legislative agenda document, “Where We Stand“:

Link Bright Futures scholarships to degrees in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

If this is done by this year’s legislature, how it is done will be critical.

If it is done by only awarding Bright Futures scholarships to STEM majors, then the STEM departments will be flooded by underprepared students.

If it is done by requiring STEM-readiness for Bright Futures eligibility, then our university science departments will have more well-prepared students.
