TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — More money is being invested into students apart of the STEM program at Tallahassee Community College.

Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, $1 million will help pay for 60 students' schooling for two years. The STEM Program gives extra support to students majoring in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Students apart of it can gain access to tutoring, internships, and more. School leaders made the announcement at the STEM Summit earlier today.

Many hope that this will leave a lasting impact on students studying at the community college.

"Prioritizing education is what's going to push this country and this world forward with innovation... we need to understand a lot of the theory behind different topics and different aspects of life in order to change it and propel ourselves forward," said Renee Gordon, the STEM Program director at TCC.
