Imagine if nurturing talent and ensuring that tomorrow’s workforce was well-prepared was a priority for all organizations and corporations. What an impact that would have on our economy and local communities!
You can help make a difference in the lives and careers of high school students by becoming a corporate or foundation partner in one the country’s most highly-regarded academic competitions.
By joining the NOSB’s Partnership Program, you can help students increase their knowledge of ocean sciences, as well as other STEM subjects, and better understand issues related to the environment, economy and global climate change. You will also help ensure that your future employees and community leaders are prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
By supporting the NOSB, you will:
- Connect with academically talented, hardworking students that have a strong interest in ocean and freshwater sciences, as well as technology and engineering fields, and who are eager to learn about your organizations’ missions and goals.
- Promote your organization as a possible future employer;
- Increase STEM workforce diversity through NOSB’s diversity initiatives with students from ‘under-resourced’ schools and student populations underrepresented in science;
- Network with a community of government agencies, academic communities (high school to graduate research institutions), NOSB alum, families, students, and the general public; and
- Feature your organization in the NOSB press releases, newsletters, and promotional materials.
In addition, being a partner also benefits your organization, as it shows these exceptionally bright and talented students, and their families, your commitment to their future. The NOSB welcomes discussions with its partners on how we can help ensure your company goals are met.
