WANT $1000 FOR COLLEGE? APPLY TO THE STANFORD ADVANCED MATERIALS SCHOLARSHIP
If you are currently enrolled in college (or headed there in 2019!) and want to win a $1000 scholarship to help cover expenses, enter the Stanford Advanced Materials Scholarship.
Stanford Advanced Materials Scholarship will award a $1000 scholarship to one highly motivated student who can thoughtfully respond to the prompt below.
Who Are We:
Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) is a global supplier of pure metals, alloys, ceramics, minerals, and rare earth materials since 1994. Headquartered in Lake Forest, California, SAM specializes in providing high-purity chemicals for research institutes and technical grade materials for advanced industries, such as pharmaceutical, capacitor, metallurgy, semiconductor, and aviation.
How It Works:
Please follow the following prompt:
With the development of modern science and technology, advanced materials have had their applications in almost every aspect of life. For instance, Zirconia ceramics have made itself a top choice for kitchen knives because of its high strength and resistance to high-temperature, oxidation, and corrosion; Titanium is a core material in the components of the world’s lightest bicycle, which weighs only 6 lbs; Silicon nanoparticles have been tested in the lab for improving breast cancer treatment; the energy-saving "smart glass" windows made with vanadium dioxide coating can block the sun's hot rays and reduce the need to run air-conditioning systems.
Where have you seen advanced materials used in your life? Please share your understanding and experience with the application of the following materials and what impact they might have in the future.
