PAESMEM.net is a virtual community aiming to foster the development of a vibrant national network of STEM mentors.

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring Program (PAESMEM) seeks to identify outstanding mentoring efforts that enhance the participation and retention of individuals (including persons with disabilities, women and minorities) who might not otherwise have considered or had access to opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). PAESMEM recipients serve as leaders in the national effort to develop fully our human resources in STEM.
