Do you know the next Lockheed Martin scholar? Applications are open!
In 2022, Lockheed Martin is investing nearly $8 million towards two scholarship programs to widen networks of opportunity, close skills gaps and prepare the next generation for the future of work.
For the fourth straight year, Lockheed Martin is offering a four-year Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Scholarship program. This program has supported nearly 600 students pursuing majors in engineering or computer science, demonstrate financial need, and come from underrepresented or underserved communities.
For the second year in a row, Lockheed Martin is offering a Vocational Scholarship Program for learners pursuing an associate degree. This program currently supports over 150 learners of all ages participating in skills-based training in cutting-edge technology and advanced manufacturing fields.
These scholarship programs are crucial to cultivate a competitive and diverse workforce that can make far-reaching impacts in emerging technologies like cybersecurity, advanced manufacturing and other career paths.
In 2021, we received more than 7,000 applications. These competitive programs develop the next generation of top talent and serve as a potential launching point for a career with Lockheed Martin. More than 60 students across both scholarships have been hired into Lockheed Martin as interns, apprentices or for other early-career opportunities.
Scholarships are made possible in coordination with Scholarship America.
