Last year, Scibridge received an East Africa Strategic Grant from the Office of International Affairs. This year, Scibridge receives a spotlight in the GlobalEyes Newsletter. The article describes how the responses from the African student participants have been "overwhelming" which exemplifies the "necessity and impact" of the program. Below is a quote from Dr. Veronica Augustyn about the organization.
"The SciBridge project is important because it is bridging not only the scientific knowledge gap, by developing hands-on experiment kits for undergraduate and high school students in East Africa, but also because it is teaching students how to participate on diverse and global teams to solve critical global challenges."
- Dr. Veronica Augustyn, Scibridge Chair and U.S. Organizer

On August 15, 2017 Scibridge became an official club at NC State University. As a result, Scibridge was granted the opportunity to apply for appropriations funding that is allocated to new student organizations. Today, Scibridge received the maximum amount of funding, $230, and will use the funds to further increase the membership of the organization. We thank the NC State Student Government for this funding opportunity.
