Through student research presentations, the SACNAS National Diversity in STEM (NDiSTEM) Conference equips young researchers with the skills and mentoring needed to be successful on their STEM journeys. Accepted applicants will have the opportunity to refine presentation skills, receive one-on-one mentoring and feedback on research, and connect with a supportive community of peers, mentors, and role models throughout our annual NDiSTEM Conference.
SACNAS provides conference scholarships that include funded travel, lodging, and registration for undergraduate and graduate students to attend the SACNAS National Diversity in STEM (NDiSTEM) Conference. Accepted awardees will also have access to specialized programming to welcome and orient them to the conference in October.
The SACNAS MAS (Mentor Activation for Students) Program gives students more. The MAS Program allows students at all academic levels to connect with professionals from various sectors, STEM disciplines, and areas of the country to develop professional relationships for their academic and long-term success. SACNAS Mentors— who once were in the same shoes as their mentees— will share lifetime experiences and provide one-on-one mentoring for students to reach their full potential in their academic and professional careers in STEM.
