dvsf logoAn estimated 1,000 students from Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, and Delaware will compete for scholarships and prizes at the Delaware Valley Science Fairs (DVSF) on Wednesday, April 1, 2015. University of the Sciences is once again proud to be a sponsor of this annual event and provide scholarships to first, second, and third place finishers at the 11th grade level.

DVSF features independent research in 15 scientific categories by students in grades 6-12 who have completed science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) research projects and have advanced after competing in their local fairs.

Now in its 67th year, the DVSF students compete for over $2 million in scholarship money and prizes. Past winning projects have included cancer research, rocket engineering, green buildings, and seismic faults. Fifteen winners from DVSF will receive an expense-paid trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, from May 10-15 where 1,500 students from all over the United States and 65 countries and territories will showcase their research as they compete for more than $4 million in scholarships and prizes.

USciences joins Drexel University and Harrisburg University among other prestigious area colleges and universities offering full and partial scholarships to selected winners. In addition, cash prizes, awards and trips will be given by 61 professional societies and organizations.

In recognition of the students' achievement, USciences will host a winners breakfast on Friday, April 17, 2015.
