How to participate in 2020 SACNAS (The National Diversity in STEM Conference) by Natalie Gasca
From Fernando Lopez Garcia on May 15th, 2020
Are you interested in learning about what careers, research opportunities, and internships are available with a STEM degree? This year's SACNAS conference will be held in Long Beach in October, so learn how you can participate in the largest multicultural STEM diversity event in the country. The scientific information, professional development, and support I gained at each workshop inspired me to pursue a Ph.D. in biostatistics, provided insight into applying for fellowships, and revealed an exciting range of career paths. I will be sharing my experience attending (and getting funding for) my first SACNAS conference as a junior CPP math major, and what has kept me coming back for the next seven years. Questions about conferences in general, SACNAS, research, and grad school are all welcome.
