Kitchener’s Conestoga College is one of the 26 North American colleges to benefit from Denso’s ongoing supporting of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
Denso has been awarding grants since 2001.
This year’s recipients will share in more than $1 million in grant money, with funds distributed based on each university’s technical merit, student experience, and alignment with industry needs.
Made possible by Denso’s philanthropic division, Denso North America Foundation (DNAF), the grants support the company’s mission to help cultivate tomorrow’s workforce delivering critical funds to programs exposing students to careers available in automotive and manufacturing.
“To achieve our 2030 goal of creating and inspiring new value for the future of mobility, we need to be inspiring our next generation of employees,” said Jack Helmboldt, president of DNAF. “By awarding grants to these educational institutions, we’re equipping students – and possible future Denso employees – with opportunities, skills, and knowledge that will help create a generation of innovators poised to transform the mobility industry.”
DNAF has supported STEM education through grants at colleges and universities since 2001, enabling students to access tools, technology, and experiences that better prepare them for technical careers after graduation.
