Scholarship Awards to Increase Access to STEM Education

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) provides scholarship awards to increase student access and support to higher education in STEM programs. The organization’s aim is to bridge the disparities in STEM degrees between Hispanics and their non-Hispanic counterparts. With more than 10,000 active members, including 8,000-plus student members, SHPE serves 178 student and 54 professional chapters. SHPE’s primary goal in awarding scholarships is to fill the gap in the Hispanic education pipeline from K–12 education to successful career placement, as well as advanced degree offerings in STEM fields. All degree programs must be in the 50 United States, District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico. For the 2016–2017 academic year, SHPE provided approximately $450,000 in scholarships; the organization plans to increase that amount in subsequent academic years.

Deadline: Scholarship opportunities for the 2018–2019 academic year will open in February 2018 and close on June 30, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. (PT); scholarship recipients will be notified on August 15, 2018.
