Toyota Motor North America on Friday gave Georgetown College a $1 million grant to support education programs for students in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
The grant includes an emphasis on future educators who will teach in a STEM-focused field, according to news releases issued by the college and Toyota.
Over the last 30 years, Toyota has partnered with Georgetown College on other scholarship initiatives. The company had given more than $1.5 million before Friday’s announcement.
Toyota’s Georgetown plant provides more than $171,000 in direct scholarships to Kentucky students attending colleges and universities across the state.
“At Toyota, we believe investing in education is an investment in our future, for our community and our company,” said Wil James, president of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky.
