Sponsoring the Society

Thanks to the support of generous corporations, foundations and other organizations who believe in the importance of promoting the understanding and appreciation of science and the vital role it plays in human advancement, Society for Science & the Public has brought the world of science directly to our global community for nearly a century.

The Society seeks and supports sponsorships in the following areas:


The Society has long-term title sponsors for many of our educational competitions, including the Regeneron Science Talent Search, International Science and Engineering Fair, and Broadcom MASTERS.

ISEF Education Outreach Day Program

Every year during ISEF, the Society hosts an Education Outreach Day Program. Local students and their teachers experience science first-hand through a full day of interactive, hands-on science programming including viewing finalists’ projects and visiting the ISEF Commons. Students will experience real world science in action from a broad spectrum of disciplines such as marine biology, environmental science, engineering and robotics. The Education Outreach Day Program encourages students to think critically, work together and get excited about science.

ISEF Special Awards

Participation in the Special Awards Program of the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), held each May, offers a unique opportunity for organizations to support and encourage achievements by young people in science, math, and engineering. Sponsorship can also include an exhibit booth and additional opportunities, such as Education Outreach Day, where approximately 5,000 local students and teachers attend ISEF.

Science News in High Schools

Science News in High Schools Science News in High Schools brings Science News magazine to high schools across the U.S. and worldwide. The program offers teachers and students access to the latest in-depth reporting on science topics—transforming how students and educators interact with science in the classroom by providing them with real-world examples, information, and inspiration. With access to this important resource, teachers can best help students link what they are learning in their textbooks and labs to the latest discoveries, making topics more current, relevant and understandable and inspiring more young people to pursue science careers. All high schools students in schools with this program will have full digital access to SN both in school and at home.

Advocate grant program

Advocate Grant Program

The Advocate Grant Program provides a stipend to an individual (teacher, counselor, mentor), who agrees to serve as an advocate for three to five underrepresented students to transition them from conducting a scientific or engineering research project to completing applications to scientific competition(s). Advocates help transition their students from conducting scientific or engineering research projects to aspiring to a next step of presenting the results of their research by applying and entering scientific competitions. The Society believes these advocates will make a tremendous impact in ensuring that underrepresented students submit high quality applications to scientific competitions and in turn will add to the number of underrepresented students who are competing for and winning these prestigious and life-altering awards.



Science News for Students website

Science News for Students

Science News for Students (SNS), previously known as Science News for Kids, is an award-winning website written specifically for students, educators and parents. Reaching millions of visitors each year, SNS provides an important, widely used and credible science resource, bringing science and Science News into the classroom, after-school programming and out of school activities. This online publication is offered free of charge. Sponsorship packages and commitment levels can be customized.

General Support

The Society also encourages and welcomes general support of its activities by companies, foundations and other organizations. The Society and its programs and publications have benefited greatly from grants and donations for general operating support, through employee and workplace giving programs, and via challenge grants.


The Society has long-term title sponsors for most of our educational competitions, including the Regeneron Science Talent Search, International Science and Engineering Fair, and Broadcom MASTERS.
