Make a plan to support LRSEF during Give for Good Louisville.

Louisville's annual day of giving is Thursday, September 15. Your gift to LRSEF can go even further when you make a gift online during Give for Good Louisville because of matching funds and prizes offered throughout the day. 

Funds raised for LRSEF directly support students as they pursue STEM research through entry to the fair, awards and prizes, and travel expenses for students promoted to ISEF. Look out for email and social media reminders leading up to September 15 and make a plan to give!


 

2022-2023 School Equipment Grants

LRSEF is committed to increasing the science fair participation of under-represented minority (URM) and low-income students. To boost URM-science-fair participation, LRSEF is awarding several $800 school grants to purchase science fair supplies and equipment. The equipment purchased must be used for student research by URM and low-income students with the goal of having your students present at LRSEF.  

The program is funded by LRSEF’s Amazon Innovation Grant.
