HACU STEM Summit at CSULB includes free registration for area students
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) will host 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, Long Beach (CSULB) campus for a one-day event on Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017. Undergraduate and graduate students attending school within an 80 mile radius of CSULB are eligible to apply to the HACU STEM Summit.
“The HACU STEM Summits are an extremely effective way to broaden student awareness about the numerous career possibilities in the sciences,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. “To ensure America’s competitive edge in the business and corporate world is maintained, we as a nation need to increase the number of Hispanics in the STEM fields and this Summit is geared to prepare students for entry into the forefront of the workforce.”
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 2018 Annual Conference Student Track. The scholarship includes hotel, round-trip airfare and conference registration.
Application deadline is Friday, September 22, 2017. Information and online registration is available here.
