H-E-B, Valero gifts to fund Texas Biomed STEM programs

With more than $3 million in funding from H-E-B and Valero, Texas Biomedical Research Institute is launching new science education initiatives that will allow San Antonio high school students to gain hands-on experience in biomedical research and create a new space on its campus where students can learn.

Texas Biomed this week announced two major gifts — $2 million from H-E-B and more than $1 million from Valero — that are aimed at expanding the institute’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in San Antonio.

H-E-B’s gift will go toward supporting existing Texas Biomed education initiatives such as summer internships for college students and for the construction of the institute’s future Center for Science Education. H-E-B’s funding helps support up to 20 interns, Texas Biomed said.
