At NI, we believe that part of celebrating is giving back to our community. To observe the occasion of our 10th anniversary in Costa Rica, we will award $100,000 USD for two grants of $50,000USD each to two nonprofit organizations.
NI is dedicated to Engineering Hope for a better world, and we envision a world where the racial, ethnic, cultural, and gender representation of engineers matches that of society. NI’s 2030 Corporate Impact Strategy is our plan for how we will get there.
Our 2030 goals and commitments outline how NI will put our company, people, and products to work to positively impact society and our planet. We are working toward this vision by increasing our workforce’s diversity, supporting aspiring engineers, and creating a greater sense of belonging in our industry.
One of our corporate impact pillars is “Changing the Faces of Engineering.” This means we are committed to supporting aspiring engineers and increasing the diversity of the engineering talent pipeline. We support organizations that bring hands-on, immersive STEAM learning experiences to economically disadvantaged populations, girls, people of color, and other underrepresented groups.
Each year through 2030, we will advance STEAM education initiatives serving underrepresented or economically disadvantaged students. For this grant program, we are looking for Costa Rican nonprofits that impact the community through STEAM education.
