Intel Invests in Grant Program Supporting STEM For HBCU Students
Intel Corporation seeks to expand the boundaries of technology to provide the most amazing experience possible as it designs, manufactures, and sells integrated digital technology globally.
Intel’s chief executive officer, Brian Krzanich, met with the presidents and leaders of six partner Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). The meeting was called to discuss programs and opportunities that will furnish students with the skill to excel in the technology industry.
“I’m profoundly grateful to our HBCU partners for joining us to discuss leadership in education and paving the path for a better, more inclusive tech industry.” – Intel CEO Brian Krzanich
Intel invested $4.5 million in a new grant program that supports STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) for HBCU students. The program directly awarded $3.9 million to HBCUs and will use $600,000 for workshops and discussions that bring the technology industry and HBCUs together to work on expanding and recruiting.
