Three Nonprofits Win $100K In Grants To Build Future STEM Workforce

Three nonprofits offering programs in computer coding, game design and digital literacy were awarded grants this week from an NVIDIA-funded initiative that encourages girls and other underrepresented groups to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). NVIDIA’s Future STEM Force grants $100,000 annually to U.S. nonprofits working to improve minority representation in tech by helping fund STEM programs in K-12 education. Supporting STEM education is at the core of our commitment to attracting, developing and retaining great talent. Employing people with a wide variety of perspectives and experiences enriches our company. As we look to attract diverse talent, we’re also looking to support tech-focused education programs.
