The SHPE Foundation currently manages three highly competitive scholar-internship programs. These programs offer both a summer internship at a research facility AND a scholarship for the fall and spring semesters. These opportunities are designed to enhance and achieve the potential of Latino students, who demonstrate both significant motivation and aptitude for a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.
