Education is a cornerstone for the success of our future leaders. We invest in education outreach to ensure we have an up-and-coming workforce poised to face the future and the challenges it will hold.
ASRC Federal and its subsidiaries participate in an array of activities to support schools in our local communities. Our collective workforce dedicates time and resources in support of extracurricular activities such as robotics and science Olympiad teams, school bands and work-study programs.
In addition to our local communities, we support our shareholders and their efforts to increase educational activities on Alaska’s North Slope. We provide annual funding to the Arctic Education Foundation for its general scholarship fund.
ASRC Federal provides funding for college interns through the American Indian Science and Engineering Society summer internship program. The selected AISES interns work in ASRC Federal’s headquarters office or on a subsidiary contract site. Additionally, we partner with American University’s Washington Internships for Native Students program to sponsor college interns who are placed outside of our enterprise with a federal agency, nonprofit organization or commercial entity that best meets the student’s career plans.
On an annual basis, we have employees who travel to various villages throughout Alaska as part of ASRC Day. We offer interactive workshops for elementary students that focus on identifying activities that interest the students and then discuss careers that can be based on these interests.
