All students must have a minimum 3.5 GPA to attend.

 

We believe it is unacceptable that so many of America’s highest potential students never fulfill their dream of entering scientific or high tech professions because they lack resources, direction, self-confidence or guidance. This is especially dangerous at a time when our country desperately needs creative and integrative technologists and scientists.

The Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders was created by the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists to help solve this problem by gathering the country’s finest high school students who aspire to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields and singling them out for special recognition and ongoing mentorship.

The Congress brings these young Delegates face-to-face with:

  • Winners of the Nobel Prize, the most prestigious award in the world;
  • Award winning young inventors and scientists;
  • Deans of the world’s 10 top universities;
  • Ivy League academic leaders;
  • Leaders of science and tech;
  • And scientific futurists;

for three once-in-a-lifetime days of awe inspiring motivation, excitement, friendship and education.

The Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders, sponsored by the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists, will honor these young leaders and direct them to stay true to their dreams.

Once Delegates leave the Congress they will enter a free program that provides the mentorship, resources, direction and network of connections to achieve their dreams.

This will be a truly transformational experience.

The Congress is an academic honors program and all attendees are selected by their teachers or the academy based on proven academic excellence and a demonstrated passion for science or technology.

All students must have a minimum 3.5 GPA (or equivalent) to be nominated.

A large number of places in the Congress have been reserved for students on academic scholarships.  Many students will be selected for full academic scholarships by their teachers or guidance counselors.  In addition, a limited number of partial scholarships are also available based primarily on financial need.

Delegates at the Congress will make long-term friendships with those who share their dreams — other young people like them who want to truly make a difference and devote their futures to changing the world through science and technology.

They will discuss and observe state-of-the-art inventions and be inspired by world-changing researchers, futurists and technologists.

The theme of the June 2016 Congress is “Greatness Awaits” and Delegates will be mentored by some of the greatest living minds in science – men and women who are literally leading humanity into the 21st century of innovation and discovery.

Luminaries of the science and tech fields will be inspiring the young people as will leaders of the profession from government and the public sector.

Speakers will include Nobel Prize Laureates, deans from the world’s top-10 universities, leaders in research and cutting-edge technology, and leaders from private industry.

At the close of the Congress, Delegates will participate in a formal candlelit ceremony where they will be awarded the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists Award of Achievement.

The Congress will be held in one of America’s science and technology meccas, Boston, on the campus of UMass Lowell in Lowell, Massachusetts, June 29th, 30th and July 1st, 2016.
