Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

Information about Careers in Science and Technology

In its Information about Careers in Science and Technology program, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is working to make available detailed, accurate information about the nature of scientific and technical careers.

Foundation efforts have led to the launch, in 2003, of the Sloan Career Cornerstone Center, an ever-expanding online repository of information about careers in more than 150 scientific and technical fields.  Containing information on education requirements, salaries, networking, precollege ideas, career planning resources and hundred of interviews with career professionals, Career Cornerstone has become an invaluable resource for students, advisors and guidance counselors seeking information about the prospects and challenges of work in science and technology.
