Our past programs

Over the years, HP has supported a wide variety of grant programs in the areas of education and health.


HP has a long history of supporting education, and we have reached thousands of schools in more than 40 countries through past programs. We believe technology is key to effective education, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and math. Many of our efforts have focused on helping teachers integrate technology into their classrooms, and have provided students with new ways to explore and learn through technology.


HP is focused on bringing existing solutions to underserved communities and creating new e-health solutions that advance lifesaving care and research.
