Welcome to the Delaware Valley Science Council (DVSC)


The Delaware Valley Science Council (DVSC) encourages students in our region to study and pursue careers in STEM disciplines.

The DVSC partners with schools, businesses, professional societies, and community volunteers to identify, encourage, and recognize talented youth in the Delaware Valley with outstanding capabilities in STEM disciplines. Our primary program is a competition targeting high school juniors with an interest in science and math or STEM. Nominated students from area schools complete and submit an application questionnaire describing their science interests, activities and experiences. These applications are reviewed and evaluated by professional members of the DVSC. Finalists are chosen to be interviewed by teams of area scientists. Combined interview results are used to allocate cash awards to be used specifically in furthering their STEM education.

The Council works towards ensuring a scientifically literate and talented workforce for tomorrow’s needs in Delaware Valley business, education and government.
