About the Consortium

The NYC Science Research Mentoring Consortium (The Consortium) is a partnership of academic, research, and cultural institutions committed to providing dynamic, mentored, science research experiences for NYC high school students who have an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

Our mission is to provide students from historically underrepresented backgrounds in STEM fields and careers access to innovative research internships that will support them in their college and career pathways.
