American Indian Science & Engineering Society
The mission of the American Science and Engineering Society (AISES) is to substantially increase the representation of American Indians and Alaskan Natives in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies and careers.
The focus of the Pre-College Program is “Awareness and Retention.” AISES engages in a multitude of programs and events that aim to ensure students are given exposure to first-rate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs and events. These experiences and opportunities support students in discovering, pursuing, and sustaining their interest in STEM as they prepare for their college careers and beyond.
The Pre-College Program supports early childhood through high school education and students in STEM studies through teacher training, regional science bowls, science fairs, leadership development, mentorship, scholarships, internships and other programming designed to support students and their families.
The focus of the College Program is “Access and Success.” AISES administers and is involved in many programs and events for American Indian and Alaska Native college students to increase access to, and boost success in, STEM.
The College Program supports undergraduate and graduate education and students in STEM studies through college chapters, regional and national conferences, leadership development, mentorship, scholarships, internships and career resources.
The focus of the Professional Program is “Leadership and Change.” AISES is dedicated to supporting its professional members in STEM, providing a network of Professional Chapters an annual Professional Awards Program to celebrate excellence in the field.
The Professional Program supports early, mid and executive professionals in STEM fields through professional development, career opportunities, networking and opportunities to mentor and support students in STEM.
