To survive and thrive in the face of extraordinary challenges, the world needs extraordinary innovators. The Academy’s Global STEM Alliance is identifying talented future scientists and engineers, matching them with inspirational mentors, and giving them the opportunity to tackle real world challenges.

“Every brilliant scientist started out as a graduate student or postdoc struggling for funding and recognition. And before that they were just a bright kid, with a passion for science.”
