SAE Jennifer Goforth Scholarship for Excellence in STEM Education and Service to Others

Giving back has been at the cornerstone of Jennifer Goforth’s life since she was young. As a longtime SAE member and volunteer and a 24-year veteran at General Motors, Jennifer had a vision to create a scholarship to support students who are pursuing STEM careers and are also dedicated to volunteering.  Jennifer’s generous gift will enable students to achieve their dreams and follow in her footsteps as a STEM industry professional and dedicated volunteer.
