The purpose of this Request for Applications is to build quality Health Science Pathway Programs statewide leading to industry certificate or licensure, a health science-related associate degree, and/or a bachelor’s degree in an effort to prepare an adequate number of qualified workers to meet the critical worker shortages in the health-care industry by preparing students for jobs or for postsecondary options. Applicants must be committed to quality Health Science Pathway Programs.

Grant funds will be used to: (1) attend the Health Science Educators’ Institute with a team of dedicated stakeholders representing grades seven through fourteen and (2) select up to five health science pathway components for either development or enhancement of a pathway.
