Broadcom Foundation accepts a limited number of online applications from eligible nonprofits that offer K-12 STEM education, health and human services in communities where Broadcom Corporation employees live and work. Broadcom Foundation gives special consideration to programs with opportunities for the 10,000 Broadcom Corporation employees to contribute their time and talent as volunteers, competition judges, mentors and educators.
Broadcom Corporation's commitment to excellence is reflected in the partnership it has forged with the Society for Science & the Public (SSP) to sponsor the Broadcom MASTERS - a national middle school competition focused on recognizing kids who achieve mastery of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through science fairs. The Broadcom MASTERS International also recognizes excellence of talented middle schoolers around the world. Through the National Broadcom MASTERS competition, middle schoolers are inspired to continue STEM studies through high school and to become the next generation of scientists, engineers and innovators.
