Ohio science, tech groups launch program targeted at sparking youth innovation

COLUMBUS, Ohio  — A new scholarship program is being launched to encourage Ohio students to become high-tech inventors and entrepreneurs.

Believe in Ohio will be a youth commercialization and entrepreneurship program offering incentives for achievements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The new program is being previewed Thursday at a breakfast reception at Columbus’ Riffe (ryf) Center.

Ohio has been working to encourage students into the high-paying, employee-hungry fields of math, science and technology. A Board of Regents report in June found the state has below average success in commercializing university research.

The Ohio Academy of Sciences, NorTech and Entrepreneurial Engagement Ohio say their Believe in Ohio program will promote the Regents’ goals by increasing the pipeline of STEM graduates over the next decade.
