The Dallas (TX) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated is excited to partner with ITServe Alliance by providing deserving high school seniors with two $5,000 scholarships. Each scholarship will enable them to attend college and pursue their dreams in a STEM related field.
The Dallas (TX) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated presently has fifty-five active members that contribute over 4,000 service hours annually to strengthen our community and enhance our nation. We are women, linked in friendship, who have been at the helm of numerous vital community service programs for over 64 years.
Our STEAM Academy, entering its 11th year, addresses the near absence of women of color in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math industries. Our robust program is designed to cultivate self-confidence, communication, critical thinking, and leadership capabilities. We do this by engaging 7th to 12th grade female scholars of color in purposeful activities that promote and support innovation, creativity, and problem-solving. We aim to increase STEAM awareness, career readiness and empower them to complete a STEAM college education. These efforts will enable our scholars to compete in the global STEAM workforce. The opportunities we offer our scholars are experiences they might not otherwise receive in their current environment.
The Links, Incorporated, has a membership of 16,000 women, in 41 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, and the United Kingdom. It is one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations comprised of distinguished, influential, and extraordinary women.
We look forward to exploring future options with ITServe Alliance, which may include the other six chapters in the North Texas Cluster of the Links. Together we can make it a larger initiative, transforming more lives and guiding more students into STEM.

Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to be one of the recipients of the Fall 2022 ITServ Alliance Scholarship. This letter is to extend my gratitude for the generous amount of $2,500.00 to assist me during my 2022-2023 academic year. With your financial support, I am now able to continue my studies of pursuing a degree in radiation therapy.
Thank you for your generosity, which has enabled me to earn a CCSU (Central Connecticut State University) Transfer Pathway Computer Science degree from MCC. Calculus, Intro to Computer, Java, General Biology 1, US History, and other required courses are among the subjects I plan to study at MCC
Dr. McCormick is especially proud of numerous innovative partnerships with industry. At Mercer he established a pathway to high-paying jobs at PSE&G that began in high school and involved paid internship experiences that often led to employment upon graduation. At Salem he responded to the needs of the glass industry in south Jersey by offering a short-term training program for entry-level employees that was funded by the County and the state.
Dr. McCormick is an effective communicator who believes in transparency and seeks to foster a sense of community among faculty, staff, and external stakeholders, exemplified by his popular weekly Friday Memo that highlights student activities and the achievements of MCC students, faculty and staff, and alumni.
