Fueling educators and powering young minds.
At Unitil we’re passionate about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and the opportunities the fields of study provide for smarter energy thinking and advancement. We welcome every opportunity to share this passion with educators and young minds alike.
Through our Unitil Scholarship Fund, we have awarded well over $300,000 to local, hardworking and bright students with dreams of careers in the STEM fields. In Massachusetts, we’ve developed and taught a hands-on electricity knowledge and safety program to fifth-graders preparing for their statewide (MCAS) science test for more than 17 years. And many of our employees volunteer in schools in their local communities.
These are just a few of the many ways we are involved in the advancement of STEM education in our region. We are always open to unique opportunities to support new educational initiatives and welcome solicitations.
