Calling all STEM Scholars!
Lockheed Martin has launched a new scholarship program to provide opportunities to students who want to build their talents and change the world!
Beginning in 2019, we are awarding 200 scholarships of $10,000 per student – renewable each year. The program will continue to add up to 200 new recipients each year, and will be open to individuals studying engineering or computer science that demonstrate financial need and come from underrepresented or underserved communities.
The scholarship program doesn’t end with a check. Mentoring opportunities will be a key component of the program, and recipients will also be eligible for Lockheed Martin internship opportunities following their freshman year in college.
Lockheed Martin is focused on growing and inspiring the next generation of diverse STEM talent that will help our customers tackle the world’s toughest challenges and shape the future.Patricia Lewis, SVP Human Resources
