The Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) awarded 110 graduate and undergraduate students from historically excluded communities for their research and presentation skills at 2022 SACNAS — The National Diversity in STEM Conference held in Puerto Rico on October 27–29, 2022.

Student research presentations help equip young researchers with the skills and mentoring they need to be successful on their STEM journey. This experience helps them refine presentation skills, receive one-on-one mentoring and feedback on research, and connect with a supportive community of peers, mentors, and role models.

“As a young scientist, the National Diversity in STEM Conference is where I learned the skills needed to present my research. Watching the development of this program and seeing how many more students are participating now than have in the past shows the importance of a supportive community of peers and mentors. This work highlights the next generation of diverse scientists and STEM leaders while giving visibility to their research institutions, making science more accessible for everyone, bringing us closer to True Diversity in STEM,” said SACNAS President Dr. Pam Padilla.
