Why give to the Foundation?

In 2013, the Foundation received support from 100% of both the SHEA Board of Trustees and the SHEA Education & Research Foundation Board of Trustees.

The SHEA Education & Research Foundation is funded through the generous support of people and organizations like you.  It is through your support that the Foundation can:

  • Offer research recognition and support awards to researchers and emerging leaders in the field;
  • Foster leaders and scientific exchange on the international stage; and
  • Advance novel scientific investigation through the SHEA Research Network and other research initiatives.
