Get involved

Your company’s support for MITES helps you to make a tangible, significant impact on individual students’ lives, our Boston area communities, the STEM fields, and the world at large.

Our sponsors and supporters can see the results of our programs up close and share in our scholars’ growth firsthand, by attending program events, working directly with our students, joining our advisory group, and more. We also partner on recruitment initiatives, providing access to the nation’s most talented and well-prepared young STEM scholars—so that together, we can build a more diverse and equitable workforce.

MIT is a 501(c)(3) institution, and your gift to MITES is tax-deductible within the limitations of U.S. federal income tax laws.

One of our goals was to help boost the diversity of people pursuing science, technology, engineering and math. We chose to support MITES Semester because we believe many talented high school students who would thrive in STEM lack access to educational and career opportunities.

We were looking for a program where if we donated funds it would make a lot of difference for individual young people. With our first gift we expanded the number of spots in the program by 25% from the prior year, an increase of 25 students.”
