Attracting and Retaining the Best and the Brightest

Doing a World of Good by Attracting the Best and the Brightest

Growing up in Afghanistan, I always dreamed of understanding the world around me using the knowledge to help my people. I learned that chemical engineering would help me achieve this goal. — Sohail Ayazi, New Mexico Tech student

Attracting people who bring different backgrounds, experiences and points of view to chemical engineering, will broaden its appeal, opening the doors of opportunity all.

To achieve our goal of parity in the profession by 2050, AIChE offers programs addressing gender, racial and other imbalances by cultivating inclusion from the classroom to the boardroom.

Since the campaign launched, the AIChE Foundation invested your gifts in the following ways:

  • 295 students attending 38 HBCUs were selected as FOSSI Scholars earning $10K annually for four years.
