Introduce Scholars to Your Field
There are plenty of ways we can work together to help attract talented students to your STEM-related industry.
Support Internships and Careers
While in college, each Scholar alum is encouraged to participate in Internships that will prepare them for STEM careers. This is a great resource for employers and an enriching experience for students.
Employers committed to diversity, who would like to select from a talented and motivated pool of candidates, are invited to inquire about our Scholars and programs by completing the form below.
