This organization, an affiliate group of the Association for Women in Science, was founded in 2016 by CU graduate students in STEM fields. WiSE pairs students with mentors in their fields and supports career development through networking events and an annual SciComm symposium.
The CISC supports undergraduate and graduate students across multiple identities, including students of color, LGBTQ+ students, QTBIPOC students, women and femme students and first-generation students. They provide community-building programs, educational opportunities, and a space for students to interact with people from different cultures.
CU-Boulder is a member institution of the AAUW, a national organization which advocates for women and girls. The AAUW offers a wide range of fellowships and grants at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
