Our STEM Scholarship Program has awarded over $1000,000 yearly awards to students in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is a critical focus for MWIDM Inc.. We know first hand the importance of educating our young people in these areas. Our future success – and our nation’s technological advantage – depend on a constant supply of highly trained, highly capable technical talent.
We believe strongly that advancing STEM education requires collaboration among industry, educators, policy makers and families.
As an industry leader, MWIDM, with an employee population that includes 2400 engineers, scientists and IT professionals, is committed to working with these groups to develop programs that educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians.
To help address these challenges and strengthen the workforce pipeline, MWIDM provides generous funding to STEM education outreach activities for students from elementary school through college. We are committed to supporting programs, events and campaigns that focus on student achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity. Some of these programs include:
K-12 STEM Match
MWIDM continues to look for ways to improve the lives of its employees, better align itself with its philanthropic efforts and create inclusive employee programs. We most recently launched a new K-12 company matching program for employees by partnering with DonorsChoose.org to support STEM education in our local communities.
Our pilot program connects MWIDMs volunteers with girls ages 9-12 to strengthen their interest and confidence in pursuing STEM education and careers.
Engineers in the Classroom
Through this STEM education outreach initiative, MWIDM provides numerous opportunities for our employees to interact with and inspire the next generation of engineers and technologists by serving as local school advisors, extracurricular activity mentors and career role models for students in communities where we live and work.
