The Intertech Foundation has announced its 2017 STEM scholarship for the students who are interested in pursuing careers as professional software developers. The scholarship program is aimed at current college students or college-bound high school seniors, who have excelled in the areas of Math and Science, to pursue college studies in the area of computer science. The award amount of $2500 will be available for college or high school applicants.
Tom and Linda Salonek formed the Intertech Foundation, a 50d 1(c) (3) private foundation, in late 2003 to provide financial support to families with terminally ill children.
