How to Help
Thirty-one Advocates were selected out of 240 applications to be included in the 2016-2017 Advocate Grant Program. Advocates receive a stipend of $3,000 to guide 3-5 underrepresented students in conducting a scientific or engineering research project to completing applications for scientific competitions.
The Society received 240 applications from 45 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico.
The Advocates for the 2016-2017 year include:
The Advocate Grant Program provides support to underserved students across the U.S. who have conducted scientific or engineering research projects, and encourages them to submit their research to a scientific research competition. These competitions may include, but are not limited to, the Society's three programs: the Science Talent Search, Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), or Broadcom MASTERS.
When students complete the application process to enter a science competition, it instills confidence in their scientific abilities, provides experience writing a research paper and offers a stage to present their work to peers, scientists and the public.
The grant is sponsored by the Alcoa Foundation, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, and the Society for Science & the Public. Learn more about the grant.
