Quality Education for Minorities Network (QEM) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the education of African-Americans, Alaskan Natives, American Indians, Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans. Its primary programs are centered on community outreach and leadership development and mathematics, science and engineering. The company offers extensive fellowship information and assistance to its members of all ages.
QEM offers three internship programs: the science student policy- focused internships, the health-focused internships and the tribal college/science education-focused internships. The health-focused internship will not be available this summer, but interested applicants can check back next year. In the science policy program, interns interact with agencies dealing in science policy and develop their research skills. Tribal college/science education interns design community outreach programs and study the health issues affecting American Indians. All programs include an orientation and post- internship evaluation. Each intern has an individual development plan that outlines training plans and timetables, highlights goals and tracks outcomes.
Open to college juniors and seniors and currently enrolled graduate students. Health interns must be enrolled in a historically black college or university. Applicants to the tribal college/ science education internship must have completed their freshman year and be enrolled in a tribal college or university. All positions require a science or engineering background.
