SEMI - SEMI Foundation

The mission of the SEMI Foundation is to support education and career awareness in the fields of high technology. Through scholarships and career exploration programs — SEMI High Tech U for high school students, and SEMI High Tech U Teacher Edition — the Foundation strives to:

  • Enhance the perception of the semiconductor and high tech industries
  • Stimulate interest in high tech
  • Connect with industry leaders in the community
  • Provide activities and experiences that motivate and build confidence
  • Establish networking opportunities beyond the initial High Tech U experience

With these goals in mind, the Foundation encourages students to stay in school, take more math, science, and technology courses — and discover that they can have a bright future in high tech industries
