Apply for sponsorship to the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) Leadership Summit! This annual two-day gathering is designed to equip Indigenous science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students and leaders with the knowledge, tools, and wisdom to succeed within the organizational structures in their work or academic lives.

Through sessions and workshops, Leadership Summit participants learn how to fulfill their potential as leaders as they pursue their career and academic goals. We invite you to join us and experience an innovative leadership development program that incorporates relationships, collaboration, and cultural foundations that will inform and support the unique leader in you.

The 2023 Leadership Summit is April 30 – May 2, 2023 at River Spirit Casino resort in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Students who wish to attend the conference must be an AISES member, which is free for students! Become a member here: www.aises.org/membership

  • Complete the application by the deadline of Tuesday, February 28, 2023, including submitting a resume, unofficial transcript, short application essay, a letter of recommendation, and AISES membership number
The Sealaska team will review completed applications after the deadline and select students to sponsor.

Sealaska Program Manager Kayla Roberts will be attending the conference as an advisor/host for the Sealaska-sponsored students. Sealaska will provide $175 to sponsored students to help cover incidental costs. Ground transportation, baggage fees, meals, parking, and incidental expenses are the sponsored travelers’ responsibility. Any additional travel costs that are greater than the award amount is also the responsibility of the student. Please contact Kayla at kayla.roberts@sealaska.com with any questions.
