bioSpecial Programs

Since 1999, TJ’s non-profit foundation has raised funds to support its Science and Technology Research Labs, school-wide technology needs, and various special programs, many of which are unique to TJ.



Industry, alumni, and parent support is needed for:

  • tjSTAR, TJ’s own research symposium
  • TJ Internship Fair, which introduces students to companies and agencies looking for advanced high school interns
  • TJ’s Mentorship Program
  • The Partnership Fund’s Community Grant Program that supports 8th period clubs and teams
  • New Partnership Fund initiatives linking alumni with the school, such as the Bay Area Spring Break Trip scheduled for April 2017, where select students will meet with alumni at their tech company offices in San Francisco and Silicon Valley
  • One Question” grants for student and faculty work related to the annual student-proposed question addressed by the entire school
  • Speaking opportunities, including opportunities to address the “One Question”
