Naval High School Science Awards Program – Scholarships

ONR Awards

In addition to recognizing over 1,500 high school students at science fairs with certificates and monetary awards, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) awards 22 portable undergraduate scholarships to high school students at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) who are U.S. citizens. Twenty students receive $8,000 portable scholarships – one student from each scientific category (17), and three students from any category who have projects deemed to have particular Naval relevance. In addition one two-person team is recognized, with each team member receiving a $4,000 portable scholarship.

Junior Science and Humanities Symposia

NSAP recipients who are freshmen, sophomores or juniors are invited to apply to participate and compete for generous undergraduate scholarships in the Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program. Jointly sponsored by the Army, Navy and Air Force, the JSHS program is designed to encourage analytical and creative development in the sciences and engineering.
