NM EPSCoR Education, Outreach & Diversity
The EPSCoR Externship Program is a research exchange program that allows NM graduate students (with an existing assistantship) to spend a semester or summer doing research at a partnering New Mexico university or research facility. This exchange provides opportunities to 1) conduct research in a host lab, 2) take courses at the host institution, and 3) interact within the host’s laboratory and institution. The cross-institutional cooperation among universities, research labs, and industry across New Mexico helps the success of future research, proposals, publications and collaborations.
Natives in STEM is a new collaborative project between NM EPSCoR and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. The project aims to increase Native American identity and sense of belonging in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) by creating and sharing positive images and stories of Native STEM professionals. Images will be presented as posters and stories will be shared through the NativesInSTEM.org website.
