At nVent, we are committed to strengthening the communities where our employees live and work. The nVent Foundation aims to connect with communities and protect our future by supporting quality education programs for youth—especially focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) opportunities for young learners from underserved or underrepresented communities.
In December, the nVent Foundation awarded 15 nonprofit organizations with grants to support youth STEM education ranging from $5,000 to $15,000, for a total commitment of $150,000.
The nVent Foundation’s latest round of grants will help support the next generation of leaders in science, engineering and technology pursue their ambitions and create future innovations.
