Society for Science & the Public Advocate Grant Program
Applications are currently open for teachers, scientists, and mentors who agree to support 3 additional underserved students in entering STEM research competitions.
Underserved students are often missing from the finalist groups of the Society’s competitions. In order to change this, the Society created the Advocate Program to provide mentors to encourage underserved students to enter their projects in science research competitions. The Advocates receive training and support from Society staff, a $3,000 stipend and a paid trip to Washington, D.C., to meet in person at a weekend-long convening.
