ConnectEd Foundation is a non-profit organization registered in California, United States. Our mission is to promote equality in education, cultivate next-generation scholars, and help students from diverse backgrounds to thrive in academia. To serve our mission, we collaborate with professors, researchers, and scientists in well-known universities and organize online presentations, workshops, interviews and social events with diverse audience. Through these events, we help professors to increase the visibility of their research and reach out to students who share similar research interests. Meanwhile, the academic and social events enable us to build an inclusive, diverse and supportive academic community and break the invisible ceiling caused by disadvantaged cultural, social and economical status. With all these efforts, we hope to bridge the gap between academic resources and disadvantage student population, and ensure all students who are passionate about research can pursue their dreams and thrive in academia.
