SHPE Community College Support Program

Sponsored by Honeywell
Submit a budget proposal by midnight local time on May 31

SHPE is also thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with Honeywell to support the growth and development of our distinguished community college chapters during the 2024-2025 academic year. Through this program, led by Pamela Rubalcaba from Honeywell, community college chapters can apply for funding of up to $3,400 to expand their community, provide valuable support for events and programming, and ultimately further the success of community college students in STEM.The program features two key components:

  1. A series of webinars presented by Honeywell employees, with content tailored specifically for community college students. The first webinar was held on April 22 at 12pm ET, “Which Degree is Right for Me? Exploring 2-year and 4-year Degree Options in STEM.”
  2. Direct financial support for selected community college chapters. Funding can be used for community-building activities and events, but not conference travel.

To apply for funding, community college chapters should submit a budget proposal to Pamela Rubalcaba ([email protected]) by midnight local time on May 31, 2024. Successful proposals will include:

  • A brief introduction to your chapter
  • The overall budget amount requested
  • An explanation of why funding is needed and how it will help you achieve your chapter goals (Tip: reference your Chapter Management Tool)

Honeywell will carefully review all submissions and notify selected chapters of their award by July 1, 2024. Please note, submitting a proposal does not guarantee funding. We encourage all eligible community college chapters to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to access professional development, expand your network, and gain financial support to take your chapter to the next level.
