People who want training in technology may get some additional financial help. Governor Rick Scott made announcement on January 23 that there will be $30 million in funding for a new workforce training initiative focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) occupations as part of the 2014, 2015 Florida budget. In a January 23 statement from the Office of Governor Rick Scott, Scott was quoted as saying, “Pursuing a great career often means having the skills need by employers who are creating jobs – especially in STEM-related fields.”

The Workforce State Training Program, administered by Workforce Florida, Inc. will provide flexible funding to businesses that want to train employees and people seeking training in STEM and other high skill and higher paying occupations. The initiative provides scholarships for students seeking training in a STEM-related occupation as a Florida state college or post-secondary vocational center, according to the January 23 release from the Office of Governor Rick Scott.
