STEM: Sunshine State Scholars

May

 

Leading STEM scholars from every district in Florida who are juniors in high school are honored for their outstanding academic accomplishments. Created in partnership with Florida’s universities and colleges, Sunshine State Scholars is a collaborative effort between employers, universities and the Florida Department of Education to keep this outstanding academic and workforce talent in Florida. Thanks to generous sponsor support, which ranges from contributions of $1,500 to signature sponsors at the $25,000 level, selected scholars are able to bring their families on an all-expenses-paid trip to an event in Orlando’s theme park area. Typically, scholar awards include tickets to attractions in the Orlando area, following the Sunshine State Scholars Awards Luncheon. Sponsors are highly encouraged to participate in the event, displaying their research and development work in STEM fields and encouraging future intern and employment possibilities with Florida’s most academically successful students.
