Grants for STEM Education Programs
nVent believes a skilled workforce, one that reflects the diversity of our customers and communities, is critical to the ongoing success of our company and society as a whole.
Through the nVent Foundation, we focus a portion of our giving on STEM – science, technology, engineering and math - education opportunities for young people, particularly underrepresented and underprivileged groups in communities where nVent has business operations. We are especially interested in programs that offer hands-on learning experiences and introduce young people to STEM related career opportunities.
