STEM Careers Act Builds On Veterans’ Technology Skills, Experience

President Trump is expected to sign the “Supporting Veterans in STEM Careers Act” which would make veterans eligible for National Science Foundation programs connected to careers in STEM and computer science.

Rosalinda Maury is the Director of Applied Research and Analytics at Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families. Maury speaks about what this legislation could mean for veterans. She also co-authored the careers report, “Enhancing veteran’s access to STEM education and careers: A labor market analysis of veterans in the STEM workforce.”

“The goal here is to help veterans transition to civilian life…..Veterans are at an advantage for these type of careers because the military is already STEM-oriented.
