E3 Alliance was honored November 4 for its work in the community. Bank of America gave the company the Neighborhood Builder Award.
The award comes with funding which E3 Alliance can use for future student programs, leadership and training.
Since 2006, the Austin-based company has focused on getting more students interested in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Not only does E3 Alliance work with kids in those areas but it also researches ways to better educate students who speak English as a second language. It's also developed the first regional college persistence plan in the state.
in 2015 alone, initiatives by E3 Alliance have helped more than 80,000 Central Texas students and allowed them to prepare for college and future employment.
