Mission Statement

Our mission is to diversify STEM by supporting higher education and innovative research for the next generation of minority scientists in the United States and Brazil.

Description

Seeing an urgent need for more inclusion of minorities in science and education in the U.S and abroad, we formed Dimensions Sciences to provide high impact solutions. Our mission is to diversify STEM by supporting higher education and innovative research for the next generation of minority scientists in the United States and Brazil.

We are different than other organizations because we value scholars as people as much as scientists and professionals. DS ACTS (Dimensions Sciences Advice, Coaching, Training, and Support) is the foundation for all of our work.

We offer scholarships, awards, workshops, and mentoring programs to qualified scientists across the educational spectrum. We also provide scientific education for the public through our social media channels.

We are staffed by full and part-time international volunteers who serve as our Board of Directors, leadership, and operational staff.
