Procter & Gamble, Its Orgullosa Program And Hispanic Scholarship Fund Partner In Their Efforts To Raise Awareness On The Importance Of Higher Education

Procter & Gamble (P&G) and its Orgullosa program are working with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) to support Latino students pursuing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers and empower the community with the needed financial and educational resources so they can achieve their scholastic dreams.

Data shows that Hispanics are underrepresented in STEM related fields, where they comprised only 5.9 percent of life, physical and social scientists, 5.7 percent of workers in computer and mathematical occupations and 6.4 percent of engineers 1.

Moreover, these careers represent the largest job opportunities in the upcoming years: according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in professional, scientific, and technical services is projected to grow by 29 percent, adding about 2.1 million new jobs between 2010 and 2020.

P&G and Orgullosa believe a college education, combined with an enterprising spirit and strong work ethic can open a world of possibilities, but barriers – such as the lack of financial resources – still keep many deserving Hispanics from achieving their higher education goals.

“P&G and Orgullosa share HSF’s passion to support the advancement of our Latino community on the road to success. That is why for more than 25 years P&G has partnered with HSF, contributing over $4 million nationally. Our commitment to HSF comes both in the form of financial contributions and the personal involvement of our employees and executives. But in the end, our impact is best measured in the lives that have been touched by the opportunity of pursuing a college education,” said Melanie Healey, P&G Group President, North America.

Understanding that education is an empowering tool to help the community seize their limitless potential, this year P&G and Orgullosa are donating $120,000 to HSF for scholarships to be awarded for school year 2013-2014 in an effort to increase enrollment among Hispanics in STEM related fields.
