"STEM careers are critical for continued innovation and creativity in all sectors of business. Of course, pursuing a degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics can be challenging in many ways. Collabera is eager to help students so that they worry less about the financial challenges, and focus more on becoming a great STEM innovator. Supporting deserving students can have a massive impact on the future, and is exactly why we have decided to offer our STEM scholarship for the second year in a row. Our goal is to help these future STEM leaders feel supported and capable of pursuing their dream career. Technology is at the heart of our business and we are so proud to be contributing to the next generation of creative thinkers and problem solvers," said Ashwin Rao, Executive Vice President.
