Bayer scholarships for schoolchildren
With the Bayer scholarships for school students, the foundation supports students who show special commitment. The scholarships enable the students to participate in selected summer camps and programs for school students in the natural sciences. To achieve this, the foundation works closely with accredited educational establishments in Europe, the Asia/Pacific region and America.
Since 2008 the Bayer Science & Education Foundation awards scholarships to school students from Germany. With the aid of this scholarships young people travel to Pittsburgh, USA, to take part in a two-week science camp. For two weeks, the so-called "Bayer Science Teens", together with young Americans, are engaged with the topics of technology, environmental protection and sustainability. The international science camp is organized by the non-profit organization RiverQuest based in Pittsburgh. RiverQuest has already received multiple awards for its education programs and has been collaborating with the Bayer USA Foundation for a number of years.
