Background

The Artist in Engineering Scholarship was established by a foundation of private corporations, a foundation dedicated to inspiring community artists and engaging corporations to invest in artists’ interdisciplinary educational achievement in engineering. This program will give one student the support they need to graduate from an undergraduate or graduate program, an educational opportunity they would not have access to otherwise. Additionally, the scholarship recipient is considered for internships by sponsoring corporate investors. By implementing this fine arts and engineering program, the foundation will directly address the technology education among artists and diversify high tech employment.
