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.
