To date, STEAM Sports Foundation has awarded $5,000 per year scholarships to Kettering University’s Kimberly Betty, Wayne State University’s Ashley Jones, and Universal Technical Institute’s Jinelee Galindez.  Betty and Jones wish to pursue engineering careers, while Galindez is studying to become an automotive technician. All emphasize that electric and autonomous vehicles are the vehicles of the future and are eager to engage.  These candidates are few and far in-between.  We want to change that.  During our several years, we have had applicants from around the U.S. from both technical and four-year universities, representing a racial mix of Native American, Asians, Latin Americans, Afro-American, and Eastern Europe cultures.

We don’t want to stop with Kimberly, Ashley and Jinelee, however.  The goal of the foundation is to award as many scholarships as we can.  Moving forward, we strive to award two-year grants of $5,000  per year.  And then another.  And another.
