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 industry
•Stimulate interest in high tech to all who participate
•Provide activities and experiences for students that motivate and build confidence
•Connect students and teachers with industry professionals
•Demonstrate the relationship of high school math and science to real world applications
•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 they can have a bright future in high tech.
