SACNAS Student Leadership Workshop

Founded in 1973, Society for the Advancement of Chicano and Native American Scientists (SACNAS) is dedicated to fostering the success of Hispanic/Chicano and Native American scientists—from college students to professionals—to attain advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in science.SACNAS leads the nation in student mentoring and motivation, access to graduate school and career resources, and directly contributes to the diversity of the high-tech STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) workforce. A grant from CFF will enable SACNAS to pilot a Student Leadership Workshop modeled after its highly successful Summer Leadership Institute for post-doctoral fellows and career scientists with students at community colleges and universities in the South Bay.
