The WT Foundation – Giving back, making a difference
Promoting the development of new talent in the field of engineering through educational assistance and scholarships to prospective engineering students.
District 211 Scholarship Award
Scholarships are given each year in the amount of $1,000 to a graduating senior pursuing a college degree in engineering from the District 211 High Schools of James B. Conant, Schaumburg, or Hoffman Estates. Interested students can contact their College and Career Counselor for information.
WT Group Employee Scholarship
Beginning in 2015, The WT Foundation will also be granting a $1,000 scholarship to a child of a WT Group family of Companies employee. For information on this scholarship opportunity, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Established to promote scholarship and research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the WT Foundation provides an annual grant of $1000 to a graduating senior from District 211 high schools in Schaumburg or Hoffman Estates. Additionally, in 2015 the WT Foundation established a parallel program granting an annual $1,000 scholarship to a child of a WT Group company.
The award check will be made payable to the scholarship recipient and the school they select. Students will be responsible for informing their College and Career Counselor of the school they plan to attend.
As needed, we will fund raise by personal solicitations. Endorsing what this foundation stands for and funding will be our purpose. We may also apply for grants through other foundations, where funds are available to us.
