‘The Big Bang Theory’ Starts $4 Million Scholarship for Low-Income Students

Date:

Earlier this week, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ made history when showrunner Chuck Lorre revealed that he plans on creating a Scholarship foundation. The Big Bang Theory Scholarship Endowment is currently valued at $4 million dollars.

The scholarship endowment will go directly to 20 low-income students entering the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields at UCLA this year and then benefit five new students each academic year. The inaugural class will be announced this fall at the show’s set in Burbank, California with cast and crew in attendance.

“We have all been given a gift with The Big Bang Theory, a show that’s not only based in the scientific community, but also enthusiastically supported by that same community – this is our opportunity to give back,” Lorre said in a statement. “In that spirit, our Big Bang family has made a meaningful contribution, and together, we’ll share in the support of these future scholars, scientists and leaders.”

Contributors to the scholarship include stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik, and Melissa Rauch. They’re joined by executive producers Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady, and Steven Molaro.
