To date, STEAM Sports Foundation has awarded $35,000 in scholarships to Kettering University’s Kimberly Betty, Wayne State University’s Ashley Jones, Universal Technical Institute’s Jinelee Galindez and Tanya Andres, Oakland University’s Taya Dinkins-Goldsmith, and Stanford’s Arisa Chue.   Betty and Jones wish to pursue engineering careers. Galindez and Andres are studying to become automotive technicians. Dinkins-Goldsmith and Chue are focusing on computer science. 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, Jinelee, Tanya, Taya and Arisa, however.  The goal of the foundation is to award as many scholarships as we can.  This year, we plan to award at least four $5,000 scholarships.
