Grantmaking Guidelines

About the Foundation

The Entegris Foundation was established in 2020 to provide scholarship funding to select colleges and universities located in the US or in Taiwan, Korea, and Japan that have US affiliates. (In future years, scholarship opportunities may be available to colleges and universities in additional Asian countries as long as they have US affiliates.) Selected universities will be those with existing Entegris relationships in the US, including internship and new graduate employment opportunities.

The US colleges and universities, and any US affiliates for those based in other countries, must meet the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).
