LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ASMGlobal–Having recently announced a five-year plan to deepen its corporate responsibility commitments — including the largest and greenest portfolio of sustainable venues on earth — ASM Global is dramatically expanding its ASM Global Stars Scholarship Program this week into cities throughout the United States.
Scholarship awards valued at $125,000 will be available to students in 39 cities across the country, up from 14 from the program’s inaugural 2022 launch.
ASM Global — the world’s largest live entertainment company — as part of its ASM Global Acts corporate responsibility platform, last year introduced the ASM Global Stars Scholarship Program committed to providing diverse and under-resourced communities with educational and career development opportunities through scholarship awards and prospective internships. In addition to scholarship awards totaling $125,000, recipients may also be offered internship opportunities with ASM Global.
“It’s been said that the most reliable way to predict the future is to create it,” said ASM Global President and CEO Ron Bension. “By leveling the playing field educationally, we’re striving to provide meaningful ways to help create positive change in the communities in which we do business, and one powerful action is to offer impactful career development for our future leaders.”
Shauna Elvin, ASM Global chief human resources officer, said, “Hopefully, we’re helping to unlock young people’s potential to be able to step into future leadership positions not only in our ASM Global team but in whatever endeavors they pursue.”
The application period has opened. Successful applicants will be notified in mid-July.
