Our many foundation and corporate partners are committed to CTY's mission to recognize and develop the world's brightest minds, STEM disciplines, and underserved communities. Together we are forging local, regional, and national initiatives to support student scholarships and other programs.
In cities including New York City, Newark, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, we partner with school administrators, educators, and parents to identify and nurture underrepresented bright students from low-income families. Students who receive scholarships participate in CTY's summer and online programs. Additional major funders include the Victoria, NASDAQ OMX Group Educational, JPMorgan Chase, and Ahmanson foundations.
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation provides support for talent identification. Math for America provides scholarships for bright students from lower-income New York City families to participate in challenging math and science summer courses at CTY's residential sites. The Simons Foundation supports educational outreach for STEM-based teaching and learning opportunities. Read more about how the Simon Foundation's funding provided high school students hands-on summer learning. The Overdeck Family Foundation supports ongoing educational research. Learn more about how they are funding an important multi-year study investigating whether "teaching to the bubble" is, in fact, taking place.
