The scholarships provided by the ITSMF STEM Education Foundation support students in advancing their college-level education in STEM related disciplines.  Students are recognized for their academics, aptitude to lead and serve, and their commitment to further their education.

Scholarship recipient Isaac King shares his sentiments: “I want to first say thank you to all of the leaders in IT at the Symposium.  Without you all, I would not have had the opportunity to gain wisdom and insight from the men and women in my field or to build a long-lasting connection with my family at ITSMF.  After being exposed to the highlights and challenges that many experienced professionals faced, I am confident that I belong in computer science and I am confident that I have the strength to continue pressing forward.”

     

“My sincerest thanks to each of our scholarship contributors.  To date, your support has helped us to raise $234,939 for the scholarship fund.  Your contributions enable us to make a difference in the lives of students like Isaac and the many future STEM professionals whose journey we will impact through this scholarship,” says Renea Pierre, Director of Development and Partner Engagement for ITSMF.

The ITSMF STEM Education Foundation nurtures the pipeline of future generations of technology leaders by providing students with access to technology and exposing them to careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).  To donate to the scholarship fund, visit the ITSMF STEM Education Foundation donation page or Text-to-Pledge® your donation to 912-348-8324 (TECH).
