ENTRYPOINT! is a program of the American Association for the Advancement of
Science (AAAS) offering Outstanding Internship Opportunities for Students
with Disabilities in Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science,
and some fields of Business. To meet the challenge of the competitive
global economy in the new millennium, private industry and government
research agencies must expand the pool of technical talent.
AAAS has developed unique partnerships with IBM, NASA, Merck, NOAA, Google,
Lockheed Martin, CVS, NAVAIR and university science laboratories to meet
their human resources needs. Working with its partners, ENTRYPOINT!
identifies and screens undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities
who are pursuing degrees in science, engineering, mathematics, computer
science, and some fields of business, and places them in paid summer
The ENTRYPOINT! program includes opportunities in private industry and
government agencies. Students with disabilities can apply their skills in a
real-world setting in competitive summer internships. The ENTRYPOINT!
internships are particularly valuable because of the availability of
mentoring and assistive technology, facilitating the entry and advancement
of individuals with significant disabilities into competitive employment and
research at all levels.
