Creating Pathways to Opportunity
With the growing need for technical talent within the country and diminishing talent pool, alliantgroup’s CEO—Dhaval Jadav, created The Blue Heart Fund with the goal of giving back to our community by providing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education opportunities to students across the nation.
From STEM field trips to scholarship programs and everything in between, The Blue Heart Fund aims to encourage young people to have a passion for STEM, so that one day they can pursue careers in STEM and become the innovators of tomorrow.
EMPLOY. ENGAGE. EMPOWER.
alliantgroup Black Collaborative
In May of 2020, several Black alliantgroup leaders were moved to take action as a result of the growing racial injustice movement. Kim Allen and other black professionals reached out to alliantgroup CEO, Dhaval Jadav to create a platform for alliantgroup Black professionals to openly discuss issues surrounding race, equity and community.
Since 2019, this award has been rewarding local science teachers who are increasing student engagement and achievement through innovative lesson plans that emphasize both the importance and fun aspects of science.

alliantgroup STEaM Scholarships
STEaM = science, technology, engineering, accounting & math
Since 2017, the alliantgroup Blue Heart Fund has awarded over $1 million in scholarships to students across the country pursuing a career in STEM and this year, we have expanded our program to include accounting majors, making STEM into STEaM. The addition of accountancy to our program comes with the continued drop of accounting graduates in the U.S., so it will be imperative that the next generation is equipped to fill these valuable technical positions based in the country.
We hope to encourage more young scholars to enter these fields and create more domestic technical workers who will one day drive the American economy. By investing in the next generation, alliantgroup aims to strengthen our community and provide opportunities for deserving students.
