Careers in STEM are critical to the future competitiveness of the American economy, but there is a large interest and achievement gap in the United States in STEM. As a result, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and women are seriously underrepresented in many STEM fields, which denies these fields rich diversity of perspectives and innovations. Opportunities like the Minority Educational Institution Student Partnership Program allow underrepresented students to experience these careers first-hand and make contacts for future job growth.
