Scholarship support is key to many students' college attainment. Funds are specifically directed to support a variety of students, including females and minorities, that are pursuing STEAM careers. Your investment in their future is an investment in our community's interest as well. Below are three different ways to make a difference:

  1. Endow a named STEAM scholarship with a minimum commitment of $25,000 and support STEAM students in perpetuity.
    • The establishment of this type of fund, allows the donor to establish the criteria for eligibility such as areas of study.
  2. Establish a NAMED scholarship dedicated to STEAM career pursuits support student scholarships with a minimum commitment of $2,500 a year for 5 years (a total of $12,500 over 5 years).
    • A named scholarship will be able to support a number of fall and spring term awards.
    • The establishment of this type of fund, allows the donor to establish the criteria for eligibility such as areas of study.
    • Once the funds have been expended, more can be added annually to keep it active for a long time.
  3. Contribute to the STEAM scholarship fund.
    • Your contribution will be added to the larger STEAM scholarship fund and provide funding for one scholarship award.
    • A contribution of $500 will provide funding for one scholarship award.
