Is it possible to truly place a value on education? The long-term benefits of attaining an advanced degree are far reaching and last a lifetime.
Gifts from INTM alumni and friends have an immediate impact, helping current students to achieve their educational goals and new students to make the commitment to expand their horizons, personally and professionally. Financial support makes a difference to all students.

MCKEE Scholarship Profile
INTM’s scholarship is named in honor of Dr. Keith E. McKee, a dedicated IIT alum (CE ’50, MS ’56, PhD ’62) who founded of the INTM Program in 1994 after a 30-year career at IIT Research Institute. 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.
