Kaine Announces $13 Million Grant In Math and Science

August 29, 2007

Governor Kaine announced Wednesday that Virginia has been awarded one of the first grants from the National Math and Science Initiative’s (NMSI) Advanced Placement training and incentive program.

Exxon Mobil funds the grant through NMSI committing to $125 million. Virginia was among seven states to receive the first grants awarded by NMSI in a competitive application process. The grants will each provide up to $13.2 million over the next six years to state non-profit entities to help fund training and incentive programs for AP and pre-AP courses.

“This grant will provide valuable start-up funding for a Virginia-based AP training and incentive program, which has been shown to produce results,” said Governor Kaine.

Virginia last year joined a select handful of states in which 20 percent or more of high school seniors earned a grade of three or more on an Advanced Placement (AP) examination.
