FSU, FAMU and Board of Governors celebrate $3 million grant

Leaders from the Florida Board of Governors, Florida State University and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University celebrate the rollout of the Targeted Educational Attainment (TEAm) grant program, a collaborative effort to align university and college degrees with the state’s future workforce needs. Students will begin the program this fall.

With $3 million allocated by Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature and awarded by the Board of Governors, the joint program, Expanding North Florida’s IT Career Pathways, is designed to create a pipeline from elementary school onward that prepares students for careers in the high-wage, high-demand sector of computer information and technology.
