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, SSP 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:
SSP has long-term title sponsors for many of our educational competitions, including the Intel Science Talent Search, Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, and Broadcom MASTERS. In 2013, SSP launched The Future: Powered by Fiction competition in partnership with the Tomorrow Project, Intel Foundation and Arizona State University; and the Science, Play, and Research Kit (SPARK) competition with the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. We are currently seeking a title sponsor for a club-based education program in development and are always interested in considering ideas for new competitions.
Participation in the Special Awards Program of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel 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 Intel ISEF.
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.
For more than 90 years, Science News has provided concise, current and comprehensive coverage of all fields and applications of science and technology. Science News reaches approximately 90,000 print subscribers, all of whom have access to the Science News iPad edition, and ScienceNews.org has more than eight million annual unique visitors. Sponsors have a number of opportunities to support SSP’s operations and programs through Science News. SSP makes advertising positions available in the print and iPad versions of the magazine and on ScienceNews.org on a fixed-price (rather than CPM) basis. Sponsors also may now “sponsor content” placements on ScienceNews.org. These new positions allow sponsors to customize their message any way they like – using text, images, videos or graphics – on a dedicated page on the Science News website, branded to their specifications (see our sponsor content guidelines at the bottom of this FAQ).
The Society also encourages and welcomes general support of its activities by companies, foundations and other organizations. SSP 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.
