Google RISE Awards Builds STEM Roots for Our Youth

Every year the Google RISE Team is inspired by the work that organizations like BDPA do to impact students through creative and engaging STEM initiatives. Google is excited to bring together another amazing group of organizations for the 2012 Awards.

Google RISE - Roots in Science and Engineering - Awards are designed to promote and support Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and Computer Science (CS) education initiatives. Google grants awards to organizations working with K-12 (primary & secondary schools) and university students to provide enrichment programs in these fields.

Google believes that technology will continue to play an important role in shaping our future, and the youth of today will help innovate and drive these technologies for years to come. Google hopes that all students will one day have the chance to reach their potential and achieve great things in science. To that end, we aspire to help students take one step closer to achieving their potential by offering growth and development opportunities through the Google RISE Awards.

Award amounts range from $10,000 - $25,000 in the US and Canada. Learn more at:
