Our grant proposal focused on the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program in Atlanta. The objective of our SITES program in Atlanta is to effectively use technology to stimulate and sustain the interest of young people in science and technology.
One of the focus areas for the FIS Charitable Foundation is Education:
"Preparing the children of our communities for the demands of today’s and tomorrow’s workplace is a key area of focus."Our SITES program is perfectly in synch with this focus area. SITES works with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to provide them with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills development needed to be productive, engaged members of our future workforce.
BETF will continue to aggressively seek out funding to support BDPA programs, scholarships and services hosted by our 46 local chapters. Contact the BETF executive director if you have questions or wish to discuss further.
