Medtronic and the Medtronic Foundation are partnering with the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) to launch a new college program that aims to remove barriers for Hispanic and Latino students studying STEM.
Together, they are committing more than $3 million over the next four years for scholarships, internships, and mentorship opportunities for qualified SHPE students.
Building on its decade-long partnership, Medtronic is opening internship and mentorship opportunities to SHPE students pursuing STEM-related college degrees. To amplify the impact of these efforts, the Medtronic Foundation is also committing to a scholarship program that will offset education costs and help students focus on learning and building a sense of belonginess with the STEM community. SHPE is the nation’s largest association dedicated to fostering Hispanic leadership in STEM.
