PAsmart Grant Awardees Announced — PSD Gets $35,000

Over the next decade, sev­en in 10 new jobs in Pennsylvania will require work­ers to use a com­put­er and an esti­mat­ed 300,000 STEM jobs will be avail­able in the com­mon­wealth by 2026. To meet this pro­ject­ed demand, Governor Tom Wolf launched PAsmart, a new ini­tia­tive to invest in the commonwealth’s exist­ing and future work­force.  See more infor­ma­tion about this ini­tia­tive by vis­it­ing:  https://www.education.pa.gov/Policy-Funding/SchoolGrants/PAsmart/Pages/default.aspx
