P2K created the Precision 2000 Inc. Fellowship at Georgia Tech’s School of Building Construction in December 2017. The fellowship provides financial assistance to Colombian engineers pursuing a master’s degree in the school of Building Construction.

P2K made an initial commitment of $50,000 in four years to pay for engineering students from Colombia to attend the prestigious school.

In 2021, P2K is extending and expanding the program, putting in another $50,000. That raises the company’s total commitment to $100,000.

This is the first ever donation of its kind by a Latina-owned company in Georgia Tech’s 134-year history.

Preference goes to qualified candidates who studied at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia or Escuela Colombiana de Ingenieria, in Colombia, with a further appreciation for those who have experience in the U.S. Students in the fellowship can opt to participate in a summer internship at P2K, with P2K the sponsor of the program. Upon completion, they will have the opportunity to join the P2K team, allowing the company to benefit from everything they learned at Ga Tech.

The Precision 2000 Inc. Fellowship was introduced in April 2018 by the Associate for Academic Affairs College of Engineering, Larry Jacobs (upper- left), the Chair of Building Construction, Daniel Castro, and the Dean of College of Design, Steven French. Precision 2000 CEO Guiomar Obregon and President Carlos Sanchez.

Guiomar Obregon and P2K co-founder Carlos Sanchez both studied civil engineering in Colombia and want to give other students the chance to attend Georgia Tech, as they did. Guiomar holds a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering. Carlos has a Master of Science in Management of Technology (Executive Program) from Tech.

“We’re proud to help prepare the next generation of engineers,” said Guiomar Obregon, CEO of P2K. “It opens up opportunities for them, and we hope it opens up new opportunities for our company to benefit from the knowledge they acquire.”
