Description:Fluor focuses on educational organizations and programs, universities, and schools. Almost half of Fluor's total company contributions are allocated in support of school or business partnerships and programs that help achieve the following objectives:

• Encourage elementary and secondary students to pursue higher education and training, with an emphasis on engineering and construction.
• Improve and enhance mathematics and science curricula.
• Support teacher training in mathematics and science.
• Encourage mentoring and economic literacy programs.

While Fluor generally does not provide funding directly to school clubs or events, it does fund selected universities to support engineering programs, scholarships, and student association programs.
