The purpose of these awards is to fund the cost of research materials and related expenses associated with promising high school research project proposals or ongoing projects in specific STEM-related disciplines. This year’s highlighted subdisciplines include earth and environmental sciences. Proposals for projects starting in 2023 were eligible. The amount of each award (individual or group) is $200.
