The Pathways to Science website was created by the Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) which is a non-profit organization created "to design and implement strategies to increase access to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and careers for diverse underrepresented groups." Visitors to the site will note that the homepage contains resources for educators and students who are looking for undergraduate summer research opportunities, graduate fellowships, and postdoctoral positions. The main sections on the site include "Students", "Programs", and "Faculty". The "Students" area provides opportunities to receive specific updates on new programs and research opportunities as they are added to the site. The "Programs" area lets visitors search over 1500 programs across a range of disciplines. Finally, the "Faculty" area gives faculty the opportunity to post information about their affiliated programs, news items, and event notices.
