RFP Released: Junior Science and Humanities Symposium

Over fifty years ago, the “Junior Science and Humanities Symposium” (JSHS) held its first national competition, sponsored by the U.S. Army. The Navy and Air Force quickly joined the team, making JSHS the premier high school STEM symposium sponsored by the Department of Defense.
Now, Battelle and the Tri-Service partnership is looking for an experienced manager to lead one of the nation’s premier STEM research competitions.

Across 47 regional events, thousands of high school students across the nation present their research projects and compete for scholarship prizes. The regional winners are then invited to a national symposium, to compete for even more scholarships and meet leading researchers from labs across the nation.

Submissions are due August 3, 2018– 5:00 pm EST. For more information, read the RFP .

Request for Proposals: Seeking Organization to Partner on STEM Programming Alongside the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force

On behalf of the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force, Battelle is seeking an experienced partner interested in developing new and innovative ways to carry out the Tri-Service Junior Science and Humanities Symposium – a high caliber high school research competition – as part of a consortium of partners formed by the Army Educational Outreach Program on behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense and executed by the U.S. Department of the Army.

We are looking to work with an organization that has similar STEM goals, specifically serving students from underserved populations and military dependents. JSHS addresses the nation’s need for diverse, agile and highly competent STEM professionals.
