Black Collaborative
STEaM Scholarship

STEaM = science, technology, engineering, accounting & math
We are awarding $5,000 scholarships for high school seniors, college freshman, and college sophomores who plan to major in a STEaM field in college.

Now introducing accounting to the alliantgroup
Blue Heart Fund Scholarship Program!
Since 2017, the alliantgroup Blue Heart Fund has awarded over $1 million in scholarships to students across the country pursuing a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

Applicants have a chance to win
a $5,000 scholarship toward their
higher education in STEM or accounting!

Hear from Darren Guillot, alliantgroup National Director & Former IRS Commissioner SB/SE, about why you should apply today!

All innovation starts the same way, with just a spark of ingenuity!

As an advocate for leaders everywhere, alliantgroup is proud to help light that spark for the next generation of Black engineers, scientists, and finance professionals by developing the alliantgroup Black Collaborative (aBC) STEaM (science, technology, engineering, accounting, and math) Scholarship Program.

The aBC’s mission is to promote Black Excellence through engaging in our Houston-area community, empowering Black alliantgroup professionals to reach their leadership goals, and expanding alliantgroup’s search for talented professionals to include dedicated recruiting efforts at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

With the growing need for technical and finance talent within the country, coupled with the underrepresentation of Black professionals in STEaM fields, alliantgroup and the alliantgroup Black Collaborative have created a program to incentivize Black students who are entering higher education to pursue careers in STEaM and become the leaders of tomorrow.
