Supporting the inSTEM Program:

Every dollar given in support of the NSTMF’s inSTEM program goes to supporting the scholars directly or in the form of staff support to ensure Scholar success. Any sized contribution makes a huge difference. There are a number of ways to give:

DonationsTo run a 15 Scholar cohort for an entire academic year it costs $100,000. Each time we are able to meet this benchmark we are providing Scholars peace of mind that this program will be there to support them through their academic experience. To donate through our site – click here.  

Internship Partners: We strive to ensure that no student should have to choose between improving or sustaining their lives. To that end, we encourage corporations and organizations to offer paid internship opportunities to our scholars that are fairly compensated and do not require scholars to spend money out of pocket. 

“The mentoring session gave me an assurance that I have someone to guide me and help me in my career. It also helped me build confidence and motivated me. It was really helpful and mentors are amazing!” – UT-Arlington inSTEM Scholar

Other Ways to Support:

In-kind material support: When a scholar joins the inSTEM community they are not only provided a stipend they also receive material goods to support their learning experience. This may include but is not limited to high quality web cams, microphones, usb drives, and other academic support technology. 

Employee engagement as mentors: Mentor recruitment is a year-round effort. We are happy to work with corporations and organizations who have programs that support employee volunteer work. To apply to be a mentor click here. To see our roster of past, current, and future mentors click here.

“[The mentoring session] definitely motivated me more to try harder… and that I’m not giving myself room to grow beyond my comfort zone. It allowed me to step outside of my life and look at what could be improved on.” – Howard University inSTEM Scholar
