Lawrence High student wins ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ science award

Sophie Gregrowski

Sophie Gregrowski, a 10th grader at Lawrence High School, is one of 100 award winners in the PBS  Learning “Stand Up To Cancer’s Emperor Science Award” program.

The program is an initiative designed to encourage high school students to explore careers in cancer research and care.  About 800 students in 44 states who are interested in pursuing a career in science research applied for the program. Students submitted essays describing why scientific research is so important in finding a cure for cancer, what scientific field they would study and why.

Award recipients will have an opportunity to conduct research in a lab, virtually, or a combination of both, working with a scientist on a cancer research project. They will each receive a $1,500 stipend for expenses and a Chromebook computer to enhance their studies and to connect with mentors online.

The Emperor Science Award Program extends the learning and outreach of the PBS
documentary, “Cancer, The Emperor of  All Maladies.” The program has been made possible by grants from Genentech, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Novartis.
