Giving to INTM and IIT
Did you know that you can make a contribution to specifically benefit INTM students? A donation to IIT, designated for the Keith E. McKee Scholarship Fund, enables INTM to offer financial assistance to part-time students who do not qualify for full-time scholarships and/or have special circumstances. This scholarship was established in 1996 by Dr. Keith E. McKee, a dedicated alum (CE' 50, MS' 56, PhD '62) who founded the INTM Program in 1994 after a 30-year career at IIT Research Institute.
Donations to the McKee Scholarship can be made online using a credit card (https://give.iit.edu/mckee) or by mail, sending a check with a printed donation form.
During Dr. McKee’s career he assisted hundreds of manufacturing companies to improve productivity and competitiveness by assessing operational practices and procedures, and in the process found there were very talented industrial technologists who were primed for stepping into a management role, but were held back due to their lack of an advanced degree.
|McKee believed strongly in the importance of practical experience in industry as an essential component of students' education, and designed the BINTM Program as a 2+2 program to serve individuals who had at least two years of technical coursework from an Associate's of Applied Science (AAS) program or an equivalent course of study. The BINTM built on students' technical background and focused on preparing students to address a range of operational issues and acquire the managerial skills required by industry. Access to an affordable education was equally important to McKee, thus his move to create the INTM scholarship for part-time undergraduate students. The scholarship was renamed in his honor after his passing in May 2010.|
