Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering Click Below to Donate to the Academy’s Endowment Fund
The Academy’s Council established the Endowment Fund in 2005 for the purpose of enhancing the Academy’s mission, especially relative to informing the public and engaging youth in science and technology. The Council also established urban STEM interest and career stimulation as the initial focal point for use of the Endowment Fund. Currently, the Academy’s Endowment Fund supports the Urban School Challenge of the Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair (CSEF).
The Urban School Challenge recognizes one high school student and one middle school student from an urban school district. The Academy has committed $5,000 per year for a six-year period (2012 ― 2018) to support this program.
