The Intel SHPE scholarships will be awarded to students pursuing Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees in the disciplines of Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering.
“We are so grateful and enthusiastic about this transformational gift from Intel, and for the incredible partnership we’ve forged with them over the many years through our Industry Partnership Council,” said Raquel Tamez, SHPE’s CEO. “The mission of SHPE is to empower Hispanics in STEM, whether we’re talking about students looking to enter a STEM field or established professionals determined to make that next career leap. We look forward to our ongoing collaboration with Intel as we continue to build the pipeline of exceptional STEM talent –together.”
Not only will the Intel-funded scholarships provide financial support, but also exposure to Intel job opportunities, networking with fellow scholars, insight into Intel research, training opportunities, and access to Intel mentors, the donation will also support student attendee stipends to SHPE’s 2020 National Convention in Denver, Colorado.

We are proud to partner with SHPE and support college students in their education and professional careers,” said Barbara Whye, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer and VP of Human Resources at Intel.
