Center for Careers in Science and Technology

Provides information, training, and other career opportunities for educators, scientists, policymakers, professional organizations, non-profits, governments, and industries

Institute on Teaching and Mentoring
Focuses on mentoring and teaching preparation, community insights and scholar networking

Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) National Recruitment Program
The mission of the IGERT National Recruitment Program is to help students find the IGERT program that is right for them, and help IGERT faculty and PIs find the students that are right for their programs

Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA)
Programs to support disadvantaged and underrepresented students to achieve academically in math, science and engineering and go on to attain math-based degrees

Minority Scientists Network
The Minority Scientists Network (MiSciNet), from ScienceCareers.org, specifically targets African American, Native American, and Latino students. MiSciNet perceives undergraduate years as the most vulnerable time in the training of minority scientists and, therefore, has placed its focus on undergraduates — especially those transitioning from 2-year to 4-year colleges and from undergraduate to graduate education. MiSciNet‘s main objective has been the wide dissemination of information about best practices. For teachers and administrators, MiSciNet propagates information on recruitment and retention. For students, it provides inspiration, stimulation, and guidance on succeeding as early-stage scientific trainees

National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME)
Focus on increasing the representation of African American, American Indian and Latino women and men in engineering and technology, math- and science-based careers

National Science Foundation / Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP)
Program provides awards to enhance the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and research at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as a means to broaden participation in the Nation’s STEM workforce. Support is available for implementation projects, planning grants, education research projects, and targeted infusion projects

National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
Meetings, membership, competitions and scholarships, publications

ScienceNOW
(From the journal Science)
Breaking science news and updates on the world of science from Science’s global news team. New items are posted each working day

Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Graduate Scholarship Programs
Programs focus on increasing the number of underrepresented American minorities in mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering graduate programs
