Beginning its 10th consecutive year of partnership with the USS Midway Museum, Booz Allen Hamilton will continue to support Midway education programs in 2024, including sponsorship of the Midway’s “No Child Left Ashore” scholarship program and the museum’s new Maker Space.
As guest speakers for Midway’s STEM education programs, Booz Allen employees will share their professional experiences and STEM expertise with students participating in field trips and virtual programs. This year, Midway and Booz Allen will also conduct outreach to Title I schools in Southeast San Diego, especially elementary and middle schools in the Lincoln Cluster to support STEM programming.
Booz Allen’s commitment this year will underwrite scholarships for roughly 1,000 San Diego students. These scholarships give Title I schools and classrooms in underserved communities access to STEM education field trips to Midway, and also cover the costs of bus transportation.
“We are very proud of our decade-long partnership with Midway and of the tremendous impact we have had together over the years bringing unique STEM education opportunities to thousands of students across San Diego,” said Jennie Brooks, executive vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton. “Booz Allen is honored to support Midway’s STEM education programs, and to sponsor Midway’s No Child Left Ashore scholarship program which makes it possible for Title I schools to participate in Midway’s STEM field trips at no cost. Midway’s scholarship program, along with Booz Allen Foundation grants and initiatives, help to inspire, engage, and open doors for students from Title I schools to follow a path toward a rewarding STEM career.”
Booz Allen’s partnership with Midway has always been about developing and supporting educational opportunities and strengthening Midway’s impact in the community. Over the 10 years of partnership, Booz Allen has contributed more than half a million dollars and innovative programming to support Midway’s STEM programs.
The relationship between Booz Allen and Midway is one of shared values and commitment to service. Booz Allen Hamilton was founded by a veteran, has continuously supported the military since working with the Department of Defense in 1940, and nearly one-third of the firm’s employees are military-connected.
