Our Foundation has a thirty-year history with the National Medal of Science and the National Medal of Technology and Innovation, the nation’s highest honors for scientific and technological achievement. While we at the NSTMF do not select the recipients of these medals, we play a role in the process by raising awareness about public nominations and ultimately honoring those chosen by the President.
The Biden-Harris administration has made it a pillar of their platform to foster racial equity across all programs and agencies. This includes the National Medals of Science and Technology and Innovation programs. Our organization shares these values, which inform our mission to build more inclusive and equitable STEM communities.
