For over 30 years, SACNAS has provided strong national leadership in improving and expanding opportunities for minorities in the scientific workforce and academia; mentoring college students within science, mathematics and engineering; as well as, supporting quality pre-college science education. SACNAS' annual National Conference and K-12 Teacher Workshops, student chapters, e-Mentoring Program, and online internship/job placement resources are tools that help a diverse community of undergraduate and graduate students, professors, administrators, and K-12 educators achieve expertise within their disciplines.

With well over 2,000 student, post-doc, faculty/researcher and K-12 teacher attendees, the SACNAS National Conference offers unparalleled opportunities to interact with, mentor, and recruit talented minority graduate students, internship/fellowship candidates, researchers and program participants.

Students have the opportunity to apply for travel financial aid and to compete for awards by presenting their research at the conference.

The SACNAS Conference is the only conference where minorities in science can be part of a community, share their research, and give back by mentoring the next generation of students within the fields of science, math, and engineering.
