The Project on Science, Technology and Disability was established in 1975 to improve the entry and advancement of individual with disabilities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Since the establishment of the Project, AAAS has maintained the only directory of scientists and engineers with both apparent and non-apparent disabilities. The directory lists close to 500 scientists and engineers employed at large or small companies, federal agencies, and academic institutions, teaching or conducting research.
The Project’s core program is now Entry Point which offers internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities in science, engineering, mathematics, computer science, and some fields of business. More than 400 students with disabilities have completed Entry Point! internships since 1996.
Whether you’re an employer looking for tomorrow’s innovators, an educator who works with people with disabilities, or a student living with a disability, The Project on Science, Technology and Disability has something for you.
