Creating opportunity for all


About Us


The Cognizant U.S. Foundation is a 501(c) (3) private foundation supporting STEM education and skills training across the United States. Launched in 2018 with an initial $100 million investment from Cognizant, the Foundation has since awarded $12 million to organizations working to educate and train the next generation of workers in communities throughout the U.S.

We are acutely aware of the ever-growing need for qualified tech talent—talent to help businesses succeed and communities thrive. The Cognizant U.S. Foundation is working with employers, educators, policymakers, and thought leaders to ensure every person has access to a quality job in today’s 21 century economy.
