Collabera, the New-Jersey based global leader in professional services and IT staffing, has once again announced its 2017 STEM scholarship opportunity. The announcement further confirmed the company's commitment to education.
The Collabera 2017 STEM scholarship is dedicated to help individuals who want to pursue a higher education in science, technology, math, and engineering. The company will choose three qualified individuals who will then receive a $2,500 worth of scholarship.
The students should be first-year incoming students who will attend either a public or private higher degree institution this coming fall 2017. Recipients should also have a cumulative GPA score of 3.0.
Those who wish to apply for the scholarship must submit a one-page essay that answers a STEM-related question - "Pursuing a career in STEM requires a strong commitment to stay on top of the ever-changing world of technology. As a future STEM leader, what influenced your decision to pursue a career in STEM and how do you think you will make an impact in this industry?"
Those who will be able to articulately provide the best answer will become the recipients of the 2017 STEM Scholarship opportunity from Collabera.
According to Ashwin Rao, the executive vice-president of the company, they recognize the importance of a STEM education as well as the challenges of the students who will pursue a degree in these fields. He added that aside from helping future STEM leaders, the company also hopes that through this endeavor, they will be able to contribute to "new ideas and cutting edge technology" that can impact the world in the future.
All interested applicants have until March 30, 2017 to pass their applications.
The Collabera 2017 STEM scholarship opportunity are open in three different areas: the national level, the Redmond and Seattle region, and the New York and New Jersey region.
