The vision of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) is for the next seven generations of Native people to be successful, respected, influential, and contributing members of our vast and ever-changing global community. AISES supports professional development through scholarships, internships, educational opportunities, regional and national conferences, and various other STEM-promoting programs and events. Guided by leaders and elders, AISES scholars comprise a strong network of rising professionals whose individual purposes converge on the ultimate goal of growing into strong, self-determined, independently capable members of society and effective leaders in strengthening Native communities for generations to come.
