    The goal of the STEM Dual Enrollment program is to, provide access and opportunity for underrepresented students in New Jersey's comprehensive high schools to an education in an in-demand STEM career pathway by participating in a grades 9-14 industry-driven high-quality dual enrollment early college program where they earn a high school diploma, a postsecondary degree and gain valuable employability skills.”

    The State of New Jersey began a new era in college and career readiness for underrepresented students in comprehensive schools by creating the STEM Dual Enrollment and Early College High School Pilot Program (P-TEECH) initiative. This current grant opportunity represents the second cohort of this initiative, continuing to ensure that New Jersey is providing access and opportunity for all students to pursue a career in an in-demand STEM career pathway.

    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.

    The STEM Dual Enrollment program will incorporate a high-quality career and technical education (CTE) program of study as part of its design model. High-quality CTE, with its focus on both real-world skills and credential attainment, has been shown to have positive impacts on students' employment outcomes, including increased earnings, particularly for low-income and high-risk students.

    Expected outcomes of the Grant Program:

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