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
Fluor supports higher education and university STEM programs, as well as those benefiting grades K through 12 (approximately ages 6 to 18). In 2014, Fluor and its employees provided nearly 47,000 students with more than 3.3 million hours of STEM training and enrichment by investing in school-based curricular enhancements, outreach, and high quality out-of-school time activities. Examples include career and technical education welding programs, Engineers Week activities, and partnerships with Girls Scouts®, Girls Inc., and Boys & Girls Clubs of America®.
Global University Sponsorship Program
