Bio Nebraska and UNeTech have teamed up to present Opportunity Corps, a new professional development program for women in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). Applications are currently being accepted for entry into the program.

Opportunity Corps will serve as a ten-month education program, modeled loosely after the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps, and will match women academic and industry professionals in Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering, and Math with women mentors in those subject areas. The program will focus on a different subject each month, with a one-day educational workshop session featuring special guests from the community, as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions with the mentors each month.
