Micron Foundation University Relations

The Foundation works with academic partners through outreach efforts and grants. We are strengthening relationships with existing universities while expanding into community colleges to create more nontraditional pathways for students. We also support the faculty and infrastructure needed for semiconductor-related programs and innovative research.


Micron fellowships support underrepresented students and faculty whose research and thought leadership efforts focus on the intersection of leading-edge technology, society and education.
