Office of Naval Research

Navy and Marine Corps leaders recognize that our nation’s progress in science and engineering have been achieved by people who devoted their lives to research. They believe that young people who demonstrate a willingness to be part of our world of science and engineering, by participating in science and engineering fairs, deserve special recognition. Through the Naval Science Awards Program, the Navy and Marine Corps competitively select Distinguished Achievement Award winners at the county level, and invite them to participate in the Junior Science and Humanities Symposia.  Student winners at the national level are eligible for college scholarships..
