The promise of our future depends on the actions we take today. We need leaders who are innovative thinkers, ready to face challenges ahead and motivated by a desire to make the world a better place.

At Ulteig, we are committed to supporting the next generation of leaders as they work towards creating a more sustainable and inclusive future. That’s why we’re excited to share the four winners of our $1,000 scholarships, awarded in partnership with Humanity Rising, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building the next generation of leaders and social innovators.

The scholarship challenge asked students to share what inspires them to create a positive impact in their communities. Leaders of each of Ulteigā€™s Employee Resource Groupā€™s (ERGs) ā€“ Women@Ulteig, Veterans, Rainbow Alliance, and Multi-Ethnic & Ulteig ā€“ chose a scholarship recipient and the responses were truly inspiring. We look forward to the ways in which these young leaders make an impact as they work towards creating a better world.
