The Society of Manufacturing Engineers received $318,000 in sponsorship grants to the SME Education Foundation. The funding makes it possible for secondary-school students who are aspiring to careers in technology and engineering to attend the Foundation’s Gateway Academies. Gateway Academies are summer camps where talented secondary school students explore careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. The SME Education Foundation organizes more than 220 Gateway Academies in 34 states, in concert with Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a non-profit that creates pre-engineering curriculum. The SME Education Foundation has invested $1 million of its own funds toward the Foundation’s 2009 summer youth programs.

Companies who have supported SME include: American Electric Power (AEP) Foundation, Andersen Corporate Foundation, Capsugel, a division of Pfizer, Emerson Charitable Trust, Ewing M. Kauffman Foundation, Ford Motor Company Fund, Goodrich Turbine Component Services, Haworth, Inc., H. B. Fuller Company Foundation, Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., Kennametal Inc., PPG Industries, and Westinghouse Electric Corp.
