HACU STEM Summit to be hosted at CSUSB, free student registration 

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) is hosting a free STEM Summit to prepare Latino students for corporate internships and jobs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The event will bring university students together with STEM professionals and corporate representatives at the California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) campus for a one-day event on April 27, 2016.

“The HACU STEM Summits are one of the best ways to increase student awareness about the numerous corporate career possibilities in the sciences,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. “Increasing the number of Hispanics working in STEM fields is essential to ensuring America’s competitive edge in the business and corporate world, and this Summit is geared to prepare these students for entry into that world.”

The summit will provide networking opportunities for students with professionals in STEM fields who will provide input on career building skills, as well as with corporate recruiters diversifying their workforce with job and internship opportunities. Students will also receive information about applying for paid corporate internships under the HACU National Internship Program and receive feedback on improving their resumes, interviewing and networking skills.

Five scholarships will also be awarded to attend HACU's 30th Annual Conference Student Track in San Antonio, Texas, October 8-10, 2016. The scholarship includes hotel, round-trip airfare and conference registration.

Undergraduate and graduate students attending school within an 80 mile radius of CSUSB are eligible to apply to the HACU STEM Summit.
