Notes to editors:

National Academies Grant Scheme
The National Science Academy (NSA) was established in 2010 by Welsh Ministers to promote and deliver the take-up of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects at all levels to ensure Wales has a continuous pipeline of people graduating from colleges and universities with STEM-related qualifications and skills. 

Schlumberger Foundation
The Schlumberger Foundation focuses on science and technology education for underserved secondary school students and university teachers around the world.  It was created by Schlumberger, an employer of scientists, engineers and technicians in over 80 countries, which pledges support and educational opportunities for young people where Schlumberger employees live and work, particularly in developing nations. www.foundation.slb.com

STEMNET
STEMNET creates opportunities to inspire young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This enables young people to develop their creativity, problem-solving and employability skills, widens their choices and supports the UK’s future competitiveness. STEMNET helps encourage young people to be well informed about STEM, able to engage fully in debate, and make decisions about STEM related issues. www.stemnet.org.uk
