What if you could change the course of a community college student's life? If you could give them an experience so powerful that it turned them into the engineers of tomorrow -- the engineers that industry so desperately needs? That's exactly what we're doing here. And, by donating during the Newman’s Own Holiday Challenge campaign, you could help us win additional funds to support this great cause!
Help us raise $100,000 to put 10 more high-potential, low-resource students into the "Victory Circle" next year -- meaning that they are prepared to transfer to a four-year university in a STEM major, land a well-paid STEM job, or launch their own start-up.
Through residency-based paid summer fellowships at the University of Southern California, University of California, Irvine and Caltech, we give underrepresented women and minorities the opportunity to conduct university-level research and execute hands-on projects such as building your own drone or launching a liquid-fueled rocket, all while getting paid and living on campus.
Students work together in teams and receive mentorship from doctoral and masters students. They then go on to pursue four-year degrees and earn more prestigious paid internships. Check out what the New York Times has to say about Base 11's fellowship program and hear from our Victory Circle members about how the program has changed their lives. Join us in the STEM Revolution!
