Colocation and dedicated server hosting provider Colocation America
is offering grants to support K-12 scholars in the United States. The company, which was founded in 2000 and has data centers in Los Angeles, is recognized as one of America's most reliable colocation hosting providers. Its grants are intended to finance youth programs that focus on science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM) and underscore its commitment to "working with nonprofits within the community" and help establish the educational background youngsters need for the future.
The company is offering between four and ten grants to 501(c) (3) public charities and K-12 educators offering STEM programs. The grants are valued at up to $7,500 and awarded by members on the STEM Grant Selection Committee based on whether program goals are met. The committee members include Margaret Weber, Dean Emerita, Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) at Pepperdine University; Hillary Stiff, Managing Director at Cheval Capital, Inc; Cathie Mostovoy, Founder and President at Mostovoy Strategies.
“Every student deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential,” explained Albert Ahdoot, Business Development Director at Colocation America. “We created the STEM grant to inspire scholars to be excited, to be challenged and hopefully encouraged to pursue a high-demand, high-tech career in the field of STEM.”
