The Southern California Academy of Sciences is dedicated to
promoting fellowship among scientists and those individuals
interested in science; to contributing to scientific literature
through publication of pertinent manuscripts; to fostering
scholarship among young scientists; and to providing information
to the membership, to the public, and to public agencies on
matters of mutual interest and concern to the sciences and
These goals are approached annually by:
- Conducting symposia and an Annual Meeting that draws together
the academic and applied sciences community and students
pursuing a career in the sciences.
- Disseminating the results of original research through the
BULLETIN of the Southern California Academy of Sciences, which
is published three times a year.
- Providing Research Grants to students in Undergraduate,
Masters, or Doctoral programs who are investigating scientific
questions related to the Southern California area.
- Honoring best student papers and posters at the Annual
Meetings with multiple awards.
- Enabling high school students to conduct original research in
a professional laboratory setting through the Research Training
Program of the Junior Academy.
