Foundations - Building Diversity in Science


BDIS is committed to increasing the number of underserved minorities and women at the highest level of achievement in the STEM disciplines.

Through partnerships with mission-aligned foundations, nonprofit organizations, and donors, we increase the opportunities for our target population’s success. These individual successes increase the number of well-qualified candidates for advanced education and the competitive job market.

BDIS offers our Foundation and nonprofit partners a singular opportunity to combine resources. Organizations seeking to support individuals in cutting-edge STEM curriculums through scholarships, internships, job opportunities, and mentoring programs may benefit from our capability to provide qualified candidates and connections that will help you to fulfill identified goals.

We welcome the opportunity to partner and collaborate with existing organizations, and foundations that share our mission and vision.Please contact Carmen Torres to explore the difference our partnership can make.
