SCHOLARSHIPS and GRANTS ... with an emphasis on females, minorities and the economically challenged.
“A Community Thrives” when a diverse, talented, well-trained and well-educated workforce is available. It is what drives human success stories and serves a significant benefit to the U.S. economy.
The automotive industry is vital to the U.S. economy. Talent and workforce development is at a premium, particularly among the less traditional demographics.
Motorsports drives innovation in the automotive world.
Our campaign emphasizes diversity as females, minorities, and the economically challenged become the focus and primary recipients of these scholarships and grants as we continue to emphasize workforce opportunities via the “STEAM Behind Motorsports”.
The U.S. Department of Labor says that by 2024, 80% of jobs will require some sort of STEM/STEAM background. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the automotive industry where much innovation and development is driven by manufacturers’ motorsports programs.
STEAM Sports Foundation strives to raise $20,000 or more to create SCHOLARSHIPS and GRANTS for young people who a) wish to pursue an automotive career [scholarships] or b) have established a path within automotive via a start-up company [grants].
