Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
Fluor invests in higher education and university programs, as well as those benefiting primary and secondary schools. In 2019, Fluor and its employees provided more than 250,000 students with over 1.3 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 Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas STEM Journey and Young Scientist Day workshops and competitions in Poland.
Each year Fluor and its employees pay tribute to the world of engineering by participating in a variety of programs during Engineers Week, including the Fluor Friendly Competition, in which employees challenge each other in a global, company-wide engineering competition. As a part of Engineers Week celebrations, Fluor partners with Science Buddies for the Fluor Engineering Challenge. With the help of an expert team of scientists and educators, employee-developed Friendly Competition challenges have been adapted to become a truly hands-on and engaging experience designed specifically for students.
Global University Sponsorship Program
Through 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 work with the universities to prepare students for tomorrow's global and technical workforce.
