The Spirit of Ramanujan STEM Talent Initiative is an outreach effort to find and encourage undiscovered science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) talent in the United States and worldwide. (The initiative is named for Srinivasa Ramanujan, a self-taught mathematical genius of the early 20th century whose formulas are still studied today.) The program is intended for promising individuals who excel in the STEM subjects but lack traditional institutional support through grants and mentorship opportunities. Funding through this program provides grants of up to $5,000 to participate in established research programs or to engage in individual research with an approved sponsor. Students worldwide are eligible to apply; there are no specific restrictions on age or location.
Deadline: Although offers are made on a rolling basis, applications received before April 30, 2022, will be given full consideration for a 2022 award.
