Helping students connect and grow

"Thanks to the UCA of SME scholarship, I was able to connect with many individuals ranging from conference attendees to board members. I was able to learn more about the opportunities and challenges within the industry. I also received encouragement and advice for my career choices and where I want to go from many individuals who have work experiences that I too hope to have in my career. Everyone at the conference was so welcoming and look forward to future conferences."
