Florida’s highest-achieving eleventh-grade science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students will join their peers from around the state at the 2015 Sunshine State Scholars program on Thursday and Friday in Orlando.
The two-day awards and recruitment event celebrates the accomplishments of these elite students and provides a unique venue for Florida’s colleges and universities to recruit their talents. Local school districts, Florida Virtual School, Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind, and Florida’s developmental research schools choose their top eleventh-grade STEM scholar to participate in the conference.
The Sunshine State Scholars program is made possible by a partnership between the Florida Education Foundation, the Division of Florida Colleges, the State University System of Florida and the Florida Department of Education.
