Founded in 1974, SHPE continues to serve its mission of changing lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.
Scholarships actualize each of these components by increasing student access and support to higher education STEM programs. Our aim is to bridge the disparities in STEM degrees between Hispanics and their non-Hispanic counterparts.
