alliantgroup recently announced a scholarship for high school students from the State of Texas that wish to pursue a career in STEM related fields. The firm is proud to announce the winners of its first STEM scholarship:
- James Morales – University of Texas
- Shahar Pedahzur – University of Texas
- Joshua Ramirez – University of Texas at San Antonio
- Nathan DeVera – Southern Methodist University
- Alexandria Hancock – Southern Methodist University
The students were honored during a formal ceremony and presented with a $10,000 check from alliantgroup CEO Dhaval Jadav.
“It gives me great pride to congratulate this year’s scholarship award winners,” said Jadav. “It is my personal belief that every child should have the opportunity to learn about software, technology, engineering and mathematics—the very foundations of our emerging technology based economy. These are the fields where massive investments in research and development are taking place that will ultimately create a more dynamic economy and propel our country into economic prosperity for generations to come.”
The scholarship is one of numerous other corporate philanthropy initiatives recently rolled out by alliantgroup in support of STEM-based education. The firm launched the Blue Heart Fund, a non-profit charity that was created in the wake of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. It has since expanded to include promoting STEM education and careers in universities, public schools and local communities.
alliantgroup also recently announced that it would be handing out 20 $10,000 scholarships to the children of alliantgroup’s CPA and industry partners interested in pursuing a career in STEM.
Additionally, alliantgroup has partnered with organizations such as National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) and the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) to spread the word on the value of STEM jobs and in promoting awareness of technical careers in manufacturing and system integration.
“In order to ensure the success of our economy and country, we must continue to invest in the STEM education of our youth in America,” said Jadav.
