Acting Governor Guadagno Announces Governor’s STEM Scholars Program

Trenton, NJ, February 13, 2013 — Continuing the Christie Administration’s commitment to innovation, academic excellence, and support for New Jersey’s brightest students, Acting Governor Kim Guadagno today announced the establishment of the Governor’s STEM Scholars.

 The new program is in partnership with the Research and Development Council of New Jersey to pair industry leaders with the state’s most talented high school and college students in STEM subject matter — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  It will serve as a mentoring program for New Jersey’s best and brightest STEM scholars in collaboration with the leading research companies in the state.  

Acting Governor Guadagno was joined by Kim Case, Executive Director of the Research & Development (R&D) Council of New Jersey; Anthony Cicatiello, President of the R&D Council; Department of Education (DOE) Commissioner Chris Cerf; and Secretary of Higher Education Rochelle Hendricks for the announcement.

“One way to keep the best and brightest students in New Jersey is to introduce them to the research community at an early age, particular in these key disciplines to strengthen these highly-educated, high-paying industries for our state,” said Acting Governor Guadagno.  

“The U.S. Department of Commerce predicts that STEM occupations will grow by 17% from now until 2018, compared to 9.8% growth for non-STEM occupations,” Acting Governor Guadagno continued.  “This program is a major step forward in ensuring that the young people who demonstrate a talent in this area of STEM education are encouraged with real world experience by the industry.”

Established in 1962, the Newark-based Research & Development Council of New Jersey (RDNJ) was created to serve as a unified voice for the three R&D sectors — industry, academia and government — to create an environment R&D could thrive in.  It is a member of InnovationNJ.
