STRATEGIC INITIATIVES


  • STEMpg-graduate.1

Increasing Nevada’s STEM workforce development capacity to meet the needs of employers

  • STEM Workforce Challenge Grants- OSIT seeks to spark the creation of lasting partnerships between industry and workforce training providers that result in sustainable training programs that are aligned with present and future workforce needs. These programs will be focused on providing training for “middle-skill” STEM jobs requiring an associate degree or industry-recognized credential.

    • Graduate Medical Education (GME) Grants- Nevada consistently ranks among the most underserved states in most areas of healthcare delivery, both in urban and rural settings, due in large part to shortages of physicians. OSIT administers grants to ACGME-accredited training providers. These grants will fund new or expanded programs resulting in an increased number of slots for medical residents and fellows.
