Grants to New Jersey local education agencies to implement programs that improve educational and STEM career outcomes for high school students. Funding is intended for programs in comprehensive high schools that extend high school to years 9 through 14 so that students will graduate with a high school diploma, a two-year post-secondary degree aligned to industry needs, and internship experience leading to hiring preference commitments from STEM industry partners.

This grant opportunity will provide up to two selected “comprehensive” high schools – traditional high schools that offer career and technical education programs – with financial support and program development expertise to develop a P-TECH 9-14 model program. This model, which was developed in partnership with IBM and the City University of New York, will be delivered through an academy approach. It aims to strengthen students’ technical, and academic skills in a STEM pathway while attaining a secondary diploma, earning a no-cost postsecondary degree, and gaining valuable workplace employability skills. 

Expected outcomes of the Grant Program: 

  1. Increase the number of students participating in high-quality STEM career and technical education (CTE) programs; 
  2. Increase the number of students attaining a postsecondary degree during high school in a STEM career pathway; 
  3. Create a community of experienced and knowledgeable STEM career pathway educators, industry and postsecondary partners and build model P-TECH programs statewide;
  4. Prepare students through work-based learning opportunities with the skills, knowledge and personal attributes that will make them successful in their careers; and 
  5. Increase the number of STEM partnerships contributing to the expertise, resources and support of CTE. 

P-TECH is a partnership among K-12, community college and industry, each making long-term commitments and contributing their best expertise to provide students with rigorous and hands-on academic, technical and workplace experiences. P-TECH includes urban, rural and suburban schools and encompasses a range of STEM fields, including IT, advanced manufacturing, healthcare and finance. What defines P-TECH schools is a set of six key tenets which include, public-private partnership, six-year integrated program, workplace learning, open enrollment, cost-free associate degree, first in-line for jobs.

For additional information about P-Tech programs, see pages 13-15 of the Guidelines in Supporting Documents, below.

Eligible costs include:

  • Curriculum Development
