Foundation for Student Science and Technology (FSST)

FSST is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to developing the career potential of exceptional high school, college and university students for leadership roles in the science community.

Since 2008, the Foundation has helped exceptional students develop their leadership potential in the realm of physical and life sciences, engineering, mathematics and informatics, biology and environmental studies, social sciences and humanities, and more.

The Foundation’s structured programs include:

  • The award-winning Journal of Student Science and Technology, a scholarly publication offering PhD review and citation of high school, university and college student ideas and research. Reflecting the standards and practices of some of the world’s foremost science publishing, the Journal offers students real world grounding in the requirements of formal scientific publishing.

  • The Student Science and Technology Online Research Coop explores the principles and practices of independent, inquiry-based research. It matches exceptional students with top researchers to create experiential learning opportunities to work on research projects and to be immersed in professional online communications and work environments.

  • The Student Science and Technology Ambassador Program is aimed at creating opportunities for students to build peer and professional networks, explore career paths, share research ideas and topics, explore science issues and more at local, regional or national levels.
