The Big Bang Theory sets up scholarship for young scientists
The cast & creators of “The Big Bang Theory” have created a $4-million scholarship for future scientists.
Although the sitcom, which has just wrapped up its 8th season, is partly set at California’s Caltech, the fund sponsors studies in science, technology, engineering, and maths at rival UCLA.
The endowment is the university’s 1st to be created by a TV series.
The first 20 scholars will be announced on the “Big Bang Theory” set this Autumn.
The scholarship will support 5 students each year after that.
