What we do

The mission of the Achievement Institute of Scientific Studies is to guide high achieving, economically disadvantaged high school students interested in pursuing a career in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields. Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty through education.

With the help of AISS, I can confidently say that I have a clear direction of where my life is heading: working in the Manufacturing Engineering department of a biomedical engineering firm. I was blessed to have a sponsor that would help me throughout college, and this I also cannot express my gratitude for. Before even starting college, Gloria and Richard Strayer’s donations helped me participate in a summer program that got me knowing the ins and outs of the UCI campus better than some of the 4th year students!
