VEX KGMIAA Sponsorships

The Kettering/GMI Alumni Association (KGMIAA) is proud to sponsor VEX teams for the first time.

KGMIAA strongly supports high school age students who, like many Kettering / GMI alumni did at that time in their lives, have a strong interest or desire in STEM areas. Robotics competitions like VEX are a way for these students to explore and grow their interests prior to attending college.

When applying for VEX, teams must consist of high school students as well as a Kettering connection, and the primary contact must be 18 years of age or older. One sponsorship will be given per organization.


Tiers of sponsorships

$500, $250 and $100

Deadline: September 24

For more information about VEX sponsorships, email alumni@kettering.edu.
