Entry Point Internships for STEM Students with Disabilities

Entry Point is the signature program of the AAAS Project on Science, Technology, and Disability.  Entry Point identifies and recruits students with apparent and non-apparent disabilities studying in science, engineering, mathematics, computer science, and some fields of business for outstanding internship and co-op opportunities.

Since 1996, AAAS and Entry Point has created partnerships with NASA, IBM, Merck, Dow Chemical, Lockheed Martin, Ball Aerospace, L’Oreal, as well as university based research programs seeking to diversify their pool of interns.

Practicing Mentoring

YouTube video featuring 2009 PAESMEM awardee Jo Handelsman, from Yale University. Handelsman describes guidelines that she and her colleagues have developed to help scientists become better mentors. These include listening, asking questions, stating expectations, building independence, and looking at things from the perspective of the mentee or protégé. Good advice for scientists at all stages of their careers.
