Scholarships actualize each of SHPE’s mission’s components by increasing student access and support to higher education in STEM programs.  Our aim is to bridge the disparities in STEM degrees between Hispanics and their non-Hispanic counterparts.

With over 10,000 active members including over 8,000 student members, SHPE serves 178 student and 54 professional chapters.  Our primary goal in 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.
For the 2018-2019 academic year, SHPE provided approximately $250,000 in scholarships, and our plan is to increase this number for the 2017-2018 academic year!
