U.S. Agency for International Development

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is the federal government agency responsible for administering foreign aid. USAID works to promote economic and social development in more than 100 countries around the world. The U.S. Global Development Lab works to accelerate the transformation of the development enterprise by opening development to people everywhere with good ideas, promoting new and deepening existing partnerships, bringing data and evidence to bear, and harnessing scientific and technological advances.

Why We Participate:

By offering Special Awards at the Intel ISEF, USAID hopes to galvanize the brightest young minds in science and engineering to find solutions to the world’s critical development challenges.
