NTEC fuels the Navajo Nation by providing direct and indirect financial support for thousands of Navajos, charitable contributions through the Community Benefit Fund, college scholarships, vocational training and educational programs.
The company has a direct positive impact on the Navajo people from providing jobs, providing revenue, providing scholarships, providing grants to non-profits and Chapter Houses, providing school supplies, providing clothes to school children, providing heat to families, and providing opportunities by supporting vocational job training programs.
NTEC is a proponent of post-secondary students but would like to highlight success stories from the community benefit fund, other education programs and economic development (supporting small businesses) which NTEC currently extends to the Navajo people.
Navajo Transitional Energy Company is committed to prospering the educational opportunities for Navajo students in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Since 2013, NTEC has been working to create new and innovative ways to increase the knowledge base of students regarding mining career paths based in STEM fields.
NTEC sees scholarships as a way to improving the long-term quality of life for the Navajo people. We provide scholarships to students of Navajo chapters that have been partners with Navajo Mine since we started mining.
In 2018, NTEC is providing scholarships to deserving students who have chosen a STEM-based major. Please click here for an application.
Both sets of scholarships are investments into the long-term success of the Navajo Nation.
NTEC proudly supports STEM activities on the Navajo Nation and immediate surrounding areas of Navajo Mine. Many of these school-based activities are designed to show elementary, middle and high school aged students the possibilities of a STEM-related career.
Aside from scheduling tours that are school-bus friendly, NTEC also helps sponsor career days and STEM fairs that open student’s eyes to the different likelihoods found in a STEM-based career.
NTEC has begun to partner with various educational organizations to expand the horizon of helping students gain meaningful STEM experiences. NTEC has established partnerships with Navajo Technical University, Dine College, Explora, Arizona Girls Scouts, San Juan College and Central Consolidated School District to bring new and innovative programs to students. NTEC remain vigilant to new partnerships that will bring STEM activities to students on the Navajo Nation.
