Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
Fluor invests in higher education and university programs, as well as those benefiting primary and secondary schools. In 2021, Fluor and our employees provided more than 174,000 students with over 1.2 million hours of STEM training and enrichment by investing in school-based curricular enhancements, outreach and high-quality out-of-school time activities. Examples include Roper Mountain Science Center in Greenville, South Carolina, and Muntinlupa Science High School in the Philippines.
Each year, Fluor and our employees pay tribute to the world of engineering by participating in a variety of programs during Engineers Week, including outreach to area schools with hands-on activities, engineering career discussions and the Fluor Friendly Competition, in which employees challenge each other in a global, company-wide engineering competition. As a part of Engineers Week celebrations, Fluor partners with Science Buddies for the Fluor Engineering Challenge. With the help of an expert team of scientists and educators, employee-developed Friendly Competition challenges have been adapted to become a truly hands-on and engaging experience designed specifically for students.
Global University Sponsorship Program
Through the Global University Sponsorship Program, Fluor sponsors annual grants and scholarships at selected universities with a focus on engineering, construction and business programs. Through these partnerships, Fluor executive teams work with the universities to prepare students for tomorrow’s global and technical workforce.
To build an inclusive culture, we are committed to strengthening our talent pipeline by expanding diversity recruiting. In 2021, we added three Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to the Global University Sponsorship Program. Fluor will provide up to $1 million, including matching donations, over three years to North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University, Prairie View A&M University in Texas and Tuskegee University in Alabama.
