The great jobs of tomorrow will be in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). People with disabilities are currently underrepresented in these fields despite recent advances in the accessibility of information technology and other tools used by working professionals.
The STEM Career Showcase for Students with Disabilities is an annual educational event where attendees meet role models with disabilities who have thriving careers in STEM fields. Students leave with a better understanding of the many professional possibilities available and the inspiration to pursue STEM careers.

Online registration is open until Sept. 30. This is an intimate event with space limited to 200 students, and we’ll take registrants on a first-come, first-served basis. Transportation grants are available through the application process.
