Students can win up to $100,000 for their research projects


In partnership with the College Board, the Siemens Foundation established the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology and the Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement.

The Siemens Competition seeks to promote excellence by encouraging students to undertake individual or team research projects. It fosters intensive research that improves students’ understanding of the value of scientific study and informs their consideration of future careers in these disciplines.

Students can compete as an individual or as a member of a team.

Additionally, students who have earned scores of 5 in AP science and math may be eligible for a $2,000 to $5,000 scholarship.

Scholarships in the amount of $2,000 are awarded to students from each of the 50 states who have earned the greatest number of AP scores of 5 in eight exams. Students are awarded in the state where their high school is located. Each state potentially has two winners, one male and one female. Two additional national winners (one male, one female) are awarded a $5,000 college scholarship. The exams are: biology, calculus BC, chemistry, computer science A, environmental science, physics C: mechanics, physics C: electricity and magnetism, and statistics.

Students who took the AP Computer Science AB exam prior to the conclusion of the course and received a score of 5 will still be permitted to use that score in place of AP Computer Science A.
