Scientist.com STEM Research NIL Award- $5000
STEM Research NIL Award- $5000
Scientist.com is excited to offer a scholarship to US-based university undergraduates participating in academic research. The NCAA’s passage of its NIL rule in 2019 enables college athletes to get paid for usage of their name, image and likeness and was intended to compensate those students for contributing to their universities. Unfortunately, undergraduates and graduate STEM students are often unpaid for their research. If the pandemic has taught us anything it is that we need to identify, nurture, incentivize and reward our future world problem solvers.
As a result of these recent developments, Scientist.com will be offering our own NIL grant of $50,000 to be divided among 10 promising junior or senior undergraduate researchers ($5,000 each). If you know of any potential applicants, they should apply.
Our team believes that supporting people in entering STEM fields is crucial to the future of innovative scientific research. We make it a point to mentor and support individuals that are early in their education and career. In the spirit of the NIL, we look forward to collaborating with the students that are chosen to receive the award so they can work as brand ambassadors for Scientist.com.
