Community Scholars Fund


Vector is committed to serving our community through leadership development. We strive to build up the leaders of tomorrow and replace ourselves over time with the philanthropic funders of the future.

In 2017 the Vector Community Scholars Fund was established to focus on two groups in the greater Huntsville community. Half of the money raised each year goes to a student(s) whose parents or grandparents work in the local defense industry, while the other half provides scholarship money for a student(s) who is heading to college as a result of The CAP & GOWN Project. The C&G Project focuses on making college a reality for underprivileged kids attending high school in Madison County. To date, these initiatives have raised more than $70,000 in scholarships.
