Academic partnerships

Because we recognize the importance of aligning our academic partnerships with our business needs, we have established networks within Boeing to manage our higher education activities.

  • The Boeing Higher Education Integration Board brings together the business and technical communities at Boeing to set our strategy and oversee an integrated approach across the company.
  • The Executive Focal network oversees strategic activities at key educational institutions by building a campus presence to identify and attract talent for future employment.
  • International University Relations Country Focals oversee university outreach and university engagement in their country, including scholarships, student projects, continuing education, and academic collaboration.


Boeing provides scholarship funds to selected schools including some Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and Minority Institutions. Boeing does not provide scholarship funds directly to students. For more information on Boeing scholarships and applications, students should contact their school's financial aid office, academic department or advisor.
