Mission Statement

Our mission is to assist early career scientists from underrepresented communities with mentoring programs and scholarships to promote diversity in the sciences to further equity, international collaboration, and innovative research.

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 assist early career scientists from underrepresented communities with mentoring programs and scholarships to promote diversity in the sciences to further equity, international collaboration, and innovative research.

We are different than other organizations because we value scholars as people as much as scientists and professionals. 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 part-time international volunteers who serve as our Board of Directors, leadership, and operational staff.
