The ITSMF Foundation nurtures the pipeline of future generations of technology leaders through community outreach, STEM awareness, scholarships, and career development.
The Foundation provides scholarships to 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.
Community Outreach and STEM Advocacy
Through the ITSMF Foundation, members, alliances and partners collaborate on community initiatives that provide access to technology resources and promote STEM education. Whether refurbishing computers for low-income families, mentoring college students, helping young professionals to develop their interviewing and networking skills, or simply tackling the socio-economic barriers that can hinder children from reaching their full potential, ITSMF is committed to closing the STEM gap and supporting the growth of a diverse technology workforce.
Research is critical in identifying diversity gaps in the technology industry and the factors that drive students away from STEM careers. Armed with this information, ITSMF can play a vital role in developing programs, providing resources and sharing thought-leadership to help “close the gap”.
