Rep. Israel Announces Federal Grant for NYIT to Develop New Multidisciplinary Minor

Congressman Steve Israel (D-Huntington) announced that the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) will receive $60,000 from the National Science Foundation’s Division for Undergraduate Education. This funding will be used to develop a multidisciplinary, multi-campus program minor in “energy, science, technology, and policy” through a unique regional partnership of public and private colleges.

Rep. Israel said, “Undergraduate education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is essential for the future competitiveness of Long Island. This funding creates a program that incorporates several local universities and aims to educate traditionally underrepresented student populations in fields with tremendous growth potential. I commend NYIT on this thoughtful and innovative educational program that will give our young people the tools they need to succeed.”

Nada M. Anid, Dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, said, “We want to thank the Congressman for supporting this initiative from its inception. He understands the need for Long Island to work collaboratively across its public and private academic institutions on energy and resiliency which will serve our students well when we establish readiness programs in preparation for future storms and power outages.”

The National Science Foundation’s funding is used to build research foundations, develop the U.S. workforce and broaden participation in these essential fields. The agency is the major source of federal funding for STEM education.
