Applications are now open for the 2023 Opportunity Corps program for women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.

The UNeTech Institute and Bio Nebraska are accepting applications for Opportunity Corps: Women in STEAM, a ten-month education program focused on entrepreneurship and leadership development that matches women academic and industry professionals in Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering, and Math with women mentors in those subject areas. The program, a partnership between UNeTech and Bio Nebraska, is funded through a grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

Opportunity Corps: Women in STEAM focuses on a different subject each month, with a one-day educational workshop session featuring STEAM industry experts and leaders from the community, as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions with the mentors each month. All fellows who complete the ten-month program are paid a stipend of $500.

The 2023 program, in its second year, will begin in February and run through November. The deadline to apply is January 6, 2023.
