The AISES mission is to increase substantially the representation of American Indian and Alaskan Natives in engineering, science and other related technology disciplines. AISES membership fee for eligible students (Students majoring in science, technology, engineering, or math fields.) is sponsored by the RIT Future Stewards Program at their request. AISES meets monthly and each year we send a large delegation of scholars to the AISES National Convention. RIT covers all travel expenses for those presenting research. Students have found the national conference an excellent opportunity to network, present their research and secure co-ops.

Native American Students Association
The Native American Student Association is open to all members of the RIT community who are interested in Native American, Alaska Native and First Nation issues and culture. NASA is primarily a social club and meets monthly; membership is free and is a good way to meet fellow Native scholars. Previous events attended by NASA include an overnight stay in the long house at the Ganondagan State Historic Site and hosting a showing of "The Medicine Game".
