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.

WEPAN Knowledge Center

The WEPAN Knowledge Center (WKC) provides a publicly accessible tool for accessing information related to women in STEM and a professional networking platform for registered users.

The goal of the WKC is to increase the number, scope, and effectiveness of initiatives to recruit, retain, and advance women in STEM. Excellent research on women in STEM exists. Unfortunately, publications are scattered across many journals and numerous disciplines, making it difficult for faculty, administrators and leaders to put research into practice.
