UB Scientista

Empowering Underrepresented Minorites in Technology | Encouraging Diversity


We are UB Scientista, the University at Buffalo chapter of the Scientista Foundation, a national organization that aims to empower women in STEM. The UB Scientista branch emphasizes opportunities for individuals in technology, but we welcome students from all majors. We promote diversity in tech by trying to provide equality of access to opportunities such as internships, scholarships, hackathons and conferences. We work closely with the UB CSE department to advocate for more visibility and resources to building a strong, cohesive network of individuals in tech that can act as one strong voice.

Our Mission

We seek to to empower underrepresented demographics majoring in Computer Science and Engineering by providing a robust campus community, online resources, and visible role models.
