ScienceCounts is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization created to enhance Americans' awareness of, and support for, scientific research.

Formed in 2014, ScienceCounts was launched with the support of eight professional science societies – APS, AIP, AAS, AAAS, AGU, OSA, SfN, and SPIE – to address the public’s growing apathy towards a national commitment to scientific excellence.

While ScienceCounts recognizes the importance of Washington-based advocacy for science, our emphasis is research, communication, and engagement activities with ordinary Americans within their communities.
