Join in supporting the Institute’s Broader Engagement program benefiting women, people of color, and others in need and underrepresented in the sciences.

About The Campaign

Did you know that recent economic projections call for the development of one million more science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professionals, and yet less than 40 percent of STEM majors actually complete a STEM degree? The numbers are much worse for women, people of color, and others from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Sustainable Horizons Institute engages students who dream of becoming scientists & engineers but belong to groups who normally don’t find support in these disciplines. We fund travel & registration to major technical conferences in the US & provide meaningful learning, mentoring & professional development opportunities by educating, training & connecting students with leaders in these fields.

Not only that, we are working with communities to catalyze the normalization of inclusion…that is, we engage and educate scientific communities in transforming to environments that support and welcome everyone.

Please join us in supporting students and early career faculty and professionals as they pursue their dreams at the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) 2017 Computational Science and Engineering Conference.

The Broader Engagement program at SIAM was hands-down the best conference program I have ever participated in. This conference helped me to rediscover my passion. In talking to my new BE friends, a lot of us have found that this conference had such a positive impact on us, whether by opening the door for full-time jobs, internships, collaborations, or friendships.

The BE program inspired me to work harder in order to accomplish my short-term goals which included conducting research during summer 2015 as well as starting an outreach program to mentor middle school students. I led an IgniteCS outreach program sponsored by Google in my local community. After that, I conducted research at Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
