This year's Archie Lacey Award, given each February (Black History Month) to an educator who has made strides in advancing minority student participation in the sciences, was presented to Satyajit Bhattacharya, founder, president, and CEO of the Harlem Children Society (HCS).

HCS matches qualifying high school students from underrepresented backgrounds in New York City, the tri-state area, and the nation with top research scientists at well-established institutions for paid summer and after-school internships.

Growing from two students from one high school in 2000, HCS is now host to 103 high school students from 35 schools, working with over 125 mentors from 45 leading medical, scientific, and engineering institutions, including Columbia University, The Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Hunter College, and the American Museum of Natural History.

Graduates of HCS have gone on to pursue higher degrees at many prestigious colleges, including Penn State, Dartmouth, New York University, Swarthmore, and Cornell.

HCS links science to society by sponsoring a yearly street fair in Harlem where students showcase their work.
