About the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education plays a critical role in enabling the United States to remain the economic and technological leader of the global marketplace of the 21st century.
Innovation in science and technology has always been a cornerstone of growth in the United States and scientific curiosity has resulted in incredible and impactful discoveries. Albert Einstein, one of America’s greatest geniuses to date noted, “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.”
The Academy was founded on the belief that we must identify prospective talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of vital careers in emerging science and technology fields.
The Academy provides students with compelling educational material and experiences to help prepare students for the challenges ahead and keep them focused and true to their dreams. Most Academy services are entirely free of charge.
Among the free services are online social networks through which these future scientists and technologists can communicate; opportunities for students to be guided and mentored by leaders in science and technology; communications for parents and students on college acceptance and finances; skills acquisition; internships; career guidance; and much more.
The Academy is proud to provide full academic scholarships to attend the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders to students who are selected by their teacher or guidance counselor based on their leadership ability, academic achievement, and dedication to science and technology. In addition, the Academy offers partial scholarships for all students based on financial need.
The National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists is a membership organization chartered in 2014 to inspire and support high-achieving high school students who wish to devote their lives to the sciences and technology. The Academy pays taxes, accepts no taxpayer assistance or private subsidies, and is entirely self-sustaining through tuition from academic seminars and conferences. The Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders and the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists are owned by New Charter University of Salt Lake City, UT.
