alliantgroup STEM Scholarship

Fall 2017 applications now open

At alliantgroup, our mission is to help small and medium businesses throughout the United States take advantage of federal credits and incentives. To help keep American businesses strong, we want to assist students who are interested in pursuing a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). In accordance with our core values, alliantgroup’s success is largely attributable to its investment in its employees and empowering them with the tools and knowledge to succeed. We want to translate this investment to our community by helping students achieve their dreams.

That’s why we’re offering five students a $10,000 scholarship each for the fall semester of 2017 to help further their educational aspirations. The program, first announced by alliantgroup CEO Dhaval Jadav, falls in line with broader company initiatives with respect to supporting STEM-based industries.

“At our firm, we have devoted our lives to helping small and medium businesses claim the government incentives that they are fully entitled to,” said Dhaval Jadav. “A large portion of our clients skew toward STEM-related industries, and I cannot tell you how often I have heard these companies mention their struggles in finding the next generation of American STEM workers.”

“For various reasons, it’s been harder to find STEM workers here in the U.S., with students pursuing other career fields. While our firm supports STEM-based businesses by providing them the extra dollars needed to attract the best technical employees, there is an undeniable shortage of U.S. STEM talent,” said Dhaval Jadav. “By introducing this scholarship program today, it is my hope that we are at least doing a small part in improving the supply side of the equation by helping to get young people interested in math and science once more.”
