Check out our generous Sponsors and Partners that help to make BASEF possible!
Each year, BASEF receives generous support from many corporations, organizations, professional associations who donate funds for the merit prizes, student activities, and fair production costs. Without these "general sponsorship" donations, the fair could not be what it is.
Funding for BASEF 2016 sponsored by ArcelorMittal Dofasco is provided by ArcelorMittal Dofasco’s Corporate Community Investment Fund.
