The scholarship program is in memory of the inspirational work of education leader and co-founder of Magnitude.io, Tony Fun Tong So whose middle name was literally “Fun.”
Three $500-awards will be granted this year.
Awards will be given, one for each age category of applicants: ages 13-15, ages 16-18, and ages 19-21. To apply, write a 1000-word proposal that describes what you wish to explore, protect, or invent. Explain why it matters.
Tell your background or expertise in this scientific area, similar projects you’ve worked on in the past, and how your proposal is related to those projects. Clearly list the concrete steps that you would take where you live if you received the amount of money from this scholarship. Include a letter of recommendation from one teacher who had you as a student in the last two years.
Magnitude will accept applications from May 1 to June 21, 2022. The three lucky recipients will be announced in July, 2022. Students may live in any country but the essays submitted must be in English.
