Amgen’s Commitment to Science Education in Australia
Amgen’s philanthropic arm - the Amgen Foundation - is deeply committed to fostering the next generation of innovators who will improve patient lives.
The National Youth Science Forum Australia
In 2016, the Amgen Foundation made a USD sixty thousand grant, in partnership with Give to Asia (a third-party donor intermediary), to the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF). NYSF is using the funds to provide selected high school students with a hands-on opportunity to learn about the value, benefits, and possibilities of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM)-related careers. This program, which has been operating for over thirty years, has an impressive track record and is aligned with the mission of the Amgen Foundation to inspire the scientists of tomorrow.
