Giving Back

This is our 20th year that SIM Portland has made charitable contributions to the local community.  SIM Portland recognized that there is a dearth of qualified local professionals in the fast-evolving world of IS and IT.  In support of the pipeline for future talents in the fast-evolving world of IS and IT, SIM Portland partnered with local universities.  The scholarship is given to deserving students in the 4-year degree program in Business Information Systems, Management Information Systems, or Operational technology management. 

In conjunction with this relationship with these local universities, SIM Portland also runs a STEM outreach program that focuses on Middle and High school students.  To date, we have reached over 14,000 students in local schools
