DiscoverSTEM Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to helping underprivileged, deprived, and deserving children through scholarships and other financial aid.
DiscoverSTEM Foundation, an arm of DiscoverSTEM emerged out of our inherent and long-standing desire of seeing children innovate and bring their ideas to reality, and in the process make a positive impact on our communities, our country, and the World at large. However, for many children, getting access to top-quality education remains a distant dream.
Running state-of-the-art research and innovation labs, mentoring our students for innovation, and filing patent applications for patentable ideas are costly affairs. However, we want every passionate young kid of ours to have access to these facilities without worrying about finances. We help our young geniuses overcome this hurdle by assisting at every possible stage so that they focus on their innovation and realize their true potential.
The DiscoverSTEM Foundation is our attempt to bring all our financial assistance, scholarships, donations, and other activities under one umbrella. This formal structure will streamline our efforts, formalize a proper structure, and develop a dedicated channel to seek aid and distribute it further to deserving children.
Since 2016, DiscoverSTEM has come forth to support 145 deserving students
(81 boys and 64 girls) who had financial constraints to attend our programs Adhering to our philosophy of not leaving any deserving child behind, so far, we have granted USD 785,468 in full/partial scholarships to our young innovators.
Here are some of the other ways how DiscoverSTEM Foundation has been at the forefront when it comes to assisting children and helping them with scholarships.
We help our students with all the assistance and resources needed to file patents. Our affiliations and past experience come in extremely handy to complete the documentation process and successfully filing for patents.
At DiscoverSTEM, we believe that innovation without commercialization is just a half-baked cake. Our focus lies in rolling out the innovation for public/community use and solving real-world problems. In that pursuit, we go beyond helping our students find innovative & patentable solutions and provide a seed fund to launch their innovation into full-fledged start-ups.
Under the DiscoverSTEM foundation, we provide a seed fund of up to $30,000 to help our students commercialize their innovation, launch start-ups, and drive forward an innovation-based economy that helps our communities and country at large.
Innovations, patents, and start-ups demand a lot of research, analysis, brainstorming, collaboration, and execution. We provide FREE office space to the ‘DiscoverSTEM Entrepreneurship Program’ students to enable them to launch their start-ups to commercialize their innovations.
DiscoverSTEM Foundation supports students by providing adequate space, IT infrastructure, tools, and ancillary services to help them find and file patentable solutions. The foundation aims to leave no stone unturned to increase the competency and productivity of our students by providing all the infrastructure assistance needed to get patents, commercialize innovation, and launch start-ups.
Commercializing an innovation is not a straightforward task. It involves the incorporation of start-ups, handling taxes to meeting statutory requirements and legal compliances – all of which can be complex ad several entrepreneurs end up getting overwhelmed. At DiscoverSTEM, through our affiliated resources, take care of these by providing FREE CPA support to our ‘Entrepreneurship’ students. All they need to do is to focus on turning their idea into a million-dollar business.
A start-up is a serious business venture that can have a profound impact on the founder’s future. It is important to safeguard the interest of the founder, team members, and associated people to ensure minimum risks.
