Education, particularly the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), is a foundational component of success in the 21st century and crucial for society’s ability to innovate, problem-solve, and compete. Fluor invests in programs that encourage students to pursue STEM disciplines, preparing the next generation for success in the rapidly changing global environment.
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
Fluor supports higher education and university STEM programs, as well as those benefiting grades K through 12 (approximately ages 6 to 18). Through organizations such as South Carolina Coalition of Mathematics and Science, MIND Research Institute, Military Child Education Coalition, and Canadian Science and Technology Foundation, Fluor supported more than 106,000 hours of STEM training and enrichment to over 2,400 middle and high school students in 2012.
Global University Sponsorship Program
With the Global University Sponsorship Program, Fluor sponsors annual grants and scholarships at selected universities with a focus on engineering, construction, and business programs. Through these partnerships, Fluor executive teams interact with the universities to prepare students for tomorrow's global and technical workforce.
