Broadening Participation

The NEON Internship program is dedicated to broadening participation in science, engineering and technology. NEON encourages applications from individuals who are members of groups historically under-represented in engineering and science (including students from diverse backgrounds, first-generation college students, students with disabilitites, economic disadvantaged students and veterans).
