As part of our commitment to the education of our workforce and the communities we serve, on May 13th, we launched the 7th edition of our Scholarship Program, once again attracting the interest of over 1,400 university students from Puerto Rico and Latin America, who registered to apply for the scholarship. The Program was established in 2015, and since then, Evertec has demonstrated a genuine commitment to contributing to the development of a highly technological society with young professionals who can perform competitively in the new labor market. The program is not only focused on strengthening STEM industries (those in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics); but is also aligned with current market requirements prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic, where the demand for science, data and information technology professionals has experienced a major boom. But it goes beyond that: Program results have demonstrated that it fosters the interest and inclusion of girls and women in STEM careers. We thank all participating universities for the support they’ve shown by promoting our scholarship program among their students, and we are grateful to the young people who recognize what we do and value these grants, which serve as a point of pride and stimulates them to excel.
