Welcome to ASM-LINK

The Leaders Inspiring Networks and Knowledge (LINK) program is an initiative to build strong "LINKs" between established research investigators and early-career scientists, undergraduate faculty, and trainees (students and fellows). The program supports individuals who are underrepresented nationally in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines to succeed in bioscience education, research, and careers. The LINK program is jointly sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the American Society for Microbiology (ASM).
