Da Vinci Science Center STEAM Awards

A tradition since 1999, the awards (previously known as the Hall of Fame Awards) recognize students who show a passion for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math), and educators who inspire enthusiasm for learning with innovative approaches.

STEAM Student Scholarship Awards

The Science Center recognizes four exceptional high school students in Lehigh and Northampton Counties, who have demonstrated a passion for the sciences both in-and-out of the classroom. Each student receives a $2,000 scholarship.

Erel STEM Scholarship Award

This is a needs-based scholarship that recognizes an outstanding female high school senior who has demonstrated strong academic ability and a commitment to learning, achievement and serving others in the community. This scholarship provides both a mentorship opportunity as well as financial support of $2,000 to be used toward the cost of tuition.

The Erel STEM Scholarship is funded by Fusun Bubernack, philanthropist and entrepreneur, in honor of her parents, Hasan Fehmi & Sabahat Erel, and their commitment to the importance of quality education and the pursuit of excellence.
