Committed to our IAMCP Communities

Community and service are integrated into everything our association does. By fostering an interest in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields for students, our communities will continue growing and producing skilled workers who bring new thinking and innovation to our lives. Workforce development initiatives help ensure local businesses have a pipeline of talent and a diverse workforce. We will continue to build upon the legacy of our founders, whose dedication to community service and education has continued to enhance the regions where the IAMCP serves.

 

A well-educated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a significant contributor to maintaining the competitiveness of the U.S. in the global economy. The International Association of Microsoft (IAMCP US) Scholarship in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program addresses the need for a high quality STEM workforce in STEM disciplines supported by the program and for the benefit of the children of IAMCP members who are pursuing associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

 

Recognizing that financial aid alone cannot increase retention and graduation in STEM, the program encourages IAMCP partners to foster and promote the principles of STEM amongst their employees and their children, local businesses and industry to continue to grow and support our IT community.

 

The program seeks:

  1. To provide a benefit to IAMCP members by providing financial aid to their children who have demonstrated enrollment in obtaining degrees in STEM and entering the workforce or graduate programs in STEM
  2. To improve the education of future scientists, engineers, and technicians, with a focus on academically qualified students
  3. To generate knowledge to advance understanding of how factors or evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities affect the success, retention, transfer, academic/career pathways, and graduation in STEM

 

The STEM disciplines supported by the STEM program include:

  • Biological sciences (except medicine and other clinical fields);
  • Physical sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and materials science);
  • Mathematical sciences;
  • Computer and information sciences;
  • Geosciences;
  • Engineering; and
  • Technology areas associated with the preceding disciplines (for example, biotechnology, chemical technology, engineering technology, information technology, etc.)
