For 55 years, The Aerospace Corporation has been dedicated to helping its customers meet the increasing demand for exquisite capabilities on complex technological systems. In recent years, the number of students in the United States studying the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and math) has been steadily declining. This is a particular concern at Aerospace, due to our need for a cadre of the best technical talent to allow the corporation to fulfill its objective of assuring 100-percent customer mission success.
As part of its corporate strategy, Aerospace has a goal to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists. To that end, the corporation’s many volunteers have supported a variety of STEM programs and projects. Now, Aerospace has taken the next step in STEM support: establishing the Aerospace STEM Endowment Fund. Sustained through employee donation, charitable organizations, and estate gifts, the fund will be used to support student scholarships and grants, schools with significant percentages of under-represented and underprivileged students, teacher education programs, and other programs as the fund grows.
You can help by contributing by check to the STEM Endowment Fund. You can give during the period December 8, 2015 to January 31, 2016, or quarterly in March, June, September, and December 2016.
Please make your tax-deductible donations payable to Aerospace STEM Endowment. Send checks to:

Encouraging and supporting the next generation in pursuing STEM studies is a critical need for the corporation and the nation.
