Your gift today supports tomorrow’s leading scientists!
Making STEM Better
Through our Diversity & Inclusion programs, we work to make STEM better. Your gift supports under-represented students in learning about astronomy, physics, engineering, technology, and computing, from undergrad to post doc. Your gift will directly fund student participation in NRAO programs.
Current programs include:
National Astronomy Consortium—NAC provides long-term, year-round individual mentoring and summer research opportunities. Students are paired with world-class scientists, engineers, technicians, and other professionals from NRAO, Princeton University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Michigan State University.
National & International Exchange Program—NINE works to build a pipeline of scientists from under-represented communities. Participants come to NRAO for intensive hands-on training, prepared when they return to their home university to provide training and mentoring to students and to strengthen the partnerships with NRAO and other NINE participants internationally.
