The SHPE Foundation, in partnership with SHPE Inc. and other orgnizations, has been working exclusively to develop educational enrichment and academic outreach initiatives, for Latinos/as, that extend throughout the pre-college to PhD pathway.
Funding for the SHPE Foundation initiatives is derived from various federal, state, local and private grants and private tax-deductible donations.
The SHPE Foundation is responsible for informing the public about technical careers, internships and educational opportunities; maintaining educational centers; and promoting the interest of students and professionals in educational and charitable pursuits.
The SHPE Foundation has acquired a broad-based consistency for educational enrichment, recruitment and retention programs throughout the country, but each university's activities are unique and are supported by local SHPE chapters. The SHPE Foundation's educational programs are organized into three areas:
- Pre-College Programs
- Undergraduate Programs
- Graduate Programs
