  • The Cognizant Making the Future scholarship program recognizes today's inspiration as tomorrow’s innovation. The goal of the scholarship program is to expand the pool of students in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields who are encouraged "to be makers of things, not just consumers of things" as highlighted by President Obama at the National Academies of Science in 2009. Cognizant is committed to preparing the next generation with the skills they will need to be active participants in an environment that will become increasingly dominated by technology. This is a design-based scholarship and candidates will be required to submit documentation of a hands-on project that illustrates both creativity and innovation. The New York Hall of Science will serve as the Chair of the Selection Committee which will also include the Maker Education Collaborative, Cognizant and other organizations that support making initiatives.
