STEM professionals who identify as LGBTQ+ can bolster their personal, academic, and professional success by connecting with like-minded folks in a supportive, empowering environment. That is the mission behind Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (oSTEM), "the largest chapter-based organization focused on LGBTQ+ people in STEM." The professional network spans colleges, universities, and professional chapters in the U.S. and abroad, and membership is free. Aspiring graduate students will not want to miss the Grad App Assistance page (under Resources) where they can apply for financial assistance for school applications and test fees (up to $750) and have their application materials reviewed by an expert in their field. In the Programs drop-down menu at the top of the page, students can also navigate to the Scholarship Program page to find financial support for STEM studies. Readers interested in online offerings should check out the Resources drop-down menu at the top of the page. Under Member Resources, visitors will find guides for career development, resumes, interviewing, and more. Connect with other LGBTQ+ individuals in STEM via the Affinity Groups page, which offers a number of open groups including Ace/Aro, Dis(Ability), Race and Ethnicity, Trans and Non-Binary, and more. The COVID-19 Resources page allows readers to join the oSTEM Slack workspace, providing an additional virtual community.
