The Houston-based refiner CITGO is accepting grant proposals for the CTIGO STEM Talent Pipeline Program through to August 31st.
The program was launched in 2016 to encourage students to pursue career opportunities and degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The program aims to:
- Raise awareness of the importance of STEM education and the numerous pathways to careers in STEM amongst students, teachers and counselors;
- Support programs working to increase student interest, retention and graduation rates, particularly at the high school and post-secondary levels;
- Prepare students for STEM technical and university-level programs; and
- Encourage CITGO employees to share their knowledge and experience with students and young professionals.
The program provides grants to schools and educational organizations near CITGO’s operational areas including Houston headquarters and three refineries in Corpus Christi, Texas, Lake Charles, Louisiana, and Lemont, Illinois. CITGO also provides scholarships for students pursuing higher degrees in STEM fields.
