Science Foundation Arizona Bisgrove Scholar Program

The Bisgrove Scholars Program, sponsored by Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz), is designed to attract the nation's best early career scientists and engineers who exhibit the potential for outstanding competence and creativity in their research areas, strong communication skills, a passion for communicating the importance of their research to society and a keen interest in educational science outreach to the community.

"The Bisgrove Scholars will help put Arizona on the map as a research hub, where young and talented scientists and engineers are welcomed and encouraged to innovate," said William Harris, president and chief executive officer of Science Foundation Arizona.
