The mission of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) is to substantially increase the representation of American Indians and Alaskan Natives in engineering, science, and other related technology disciplines.
Since 1977, AISES has worked to substantially increase American Indian and Alaska Native representation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields — as students, professionals, mentors, and leaders. AISES employs a "full circle of support" model that begins with pre-college programs, progresses into collegiate life, and then into the professional years of members and on into retirement.
AISES works to promote, initiate, and provide educational services for American Indian and Alaska Native pre-college,college, and graduate students in STEM. AISES also supports early-, mid-, and executive-level professionals in STEM through professional development, mentoring, networking, community service, and awards programs and initiatives. AISES is the only professional society established by and for American Indian and Alaska Natives that specifically emphasizes lifelong learning and educational achievement by utilizing cultural aspects with STEM.
