Showing its support for education, Buick recently announced over $1 million in scholarships. This money is designed to enable college students in four-year programs to pursue education in science, technology,
engineering, and math related fields (STEM). This one more way Buick is showing it’s more than just an automotive company.
The Buick Achievers Scholarship Program will give $25,000 per year to 50 college students, according to Buick. A majority of recipients are students from diverse backgrounds and first-generation college students. Also, one in four of the scholarship winners have ties to the military, as service members or family to service members.
“The future of our country lies in technology and innovation and depends on a strong pipeline of highly skilled talent,” said GM Foundation Chairman Bob Ferguson. “Our scholarship program is helping bridge the gap between a skilled workforce and positions that companies are looking to fill.”
This scholarship is in its fourth year, awarding a total of $28 million in scholarships and grants to 3,400 high school students and undergraduates nationwide. As part of the GM Foundation initiative to increase STEM education, more than $70 million has been given by Buick’s parent company.
