Schneider Announces Second-Annual STEM Scholars Program for Tenth District High School Students

May 14, 2019
Press Release
Participants will visit local STEM facilities with Schneider to learn about career opportunities

Today, Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10) announced the launch of the 2019-2020 Tenth District STEM Scholars program, an educational opportunity for local high school students to learn about science, technology, education, and math through hands-on learning experiences. This will be the second class of STEM Scholars following the inaugural 2018-2019 class.

Beginning this fall, participating students will join Schneider on visits to four local STEM-related businesses and facilities during the 2019-2020 school year. On these visits, students will have the chance to participate in discussions with local employees, business owners, and educators, and learn more about the STEM career opportunities in our backyard. In the previous class, students visited the Chicago Executive Airport, the chemistry and photonics labs at College of Lake County, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, and Jessup Manufacturing.

This program is open to all rising Sophomores and Juniors who live in or attend high schools located within Illinois’s Tenth Congressional District. Due to space constraints, only two applicants from each high school will be selected for participation in this competitive program.

Students who are interested should submit an application online at

The incoming class of STEM Scholars will be announced in August and the first program session will be held in September.
