When & Where
The Parris Foundation
The Parris Foundation is dedicated to promoting educational opportunities and fostering awareness in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) via scholarships and community outreach programs. The Parris Foundation currently fulfills its mission by:
- Servicing disenfranchised communities by providing access to STEM education
- Providing scholarships to students from disadvantaged, socio-economic backgrounds enrolled at an accredited college or university pursing a degree in a STEM discipline
- Collaborating with organizations focused on improving access to technology for low-income families
The Parris Foundation believes that attracting young people to STEM is the key to closing the achievement gap, and eradicating the disparity in academic performance between disadvantaged and privileged students. In an effort to break the cycle of poverty in underprivileged communities, The Parris Foundation equips disenfranchised students with the tools needed to pursue STEM disciplines, academically and professionally. The Parris Foundation’s access programs provide extended learning opportunities to supplement and enhance in-school learning. The U.S. has lagged behind other countries in terms of global competitiveness in recent years; competitiveness will only improve if we start molding the next generation of innovators at a young age.
