Student STEM Competition Offers $100,000 Awards

The Siemens Foundation has opened its annual Competition in Math, Science & Technology. This year's program will offer scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $100,000.

The competition, administered by the College Board, calls on high school students to submit original research in technology, science, or math, either as individuals or in teams. Regional competitions will be held at six United States universities in November, with finalists competing in Washington, DC, in December.

"We hope that by participating in the Siemens Competition, students will embark on a lifelong journey in science, technology, engineering and math," said Jeniffer Harper-Taylor, president of the Siemens Foundation, in a prepared statement. "This is an opportunity for passionate high school students to showcase their STEM research to a national audience."

The application period for the awards is open now. Applications are due Sept. 30. Additional details can be found on the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology site.
