Thinking about Superman or ruminating on string theory are not the only things that Sheldon and Leonard did in their apartment in Passadena. Actually, almost all shooting crew of The Big Bang Theory, including it’s co-creator Chuck Lorre, are put their money to provide a financial support to the future generation of real scientists.
The Big Bang Theory Scholarship Endowment had been established by the TV series and The Chuck Lorre Family Foundation. Besides, almost half a hundred Big Bang stars together with producers and crew members took part in the scholarship’s establishment that will provide undergraduates in such fields as science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with the financial aid.
On Thursday it was announced that the fund has raised approximately $4 million. It means that 20 low-income students will have the opportunity to continue their study at the Los Angeles-based university, where they were accepted on merit but the additional payment was needed for covering the college’s costs.
Big Bang’s Burbank set this fall will uncover the first lucky scholarship recipients’ names. The stars and producers of the sitcom will join that first group of students on the entering of the ninth comedy’s season. Besides, a five more students are to receive support through all their academic years.
Among those who made donations were Sheldon and Leonard, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, in the real life, and their co-stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch as well. Television and others from the entertainment industry, including Warner Bros, CBS, ‘Big Bang’ executive producers Lorre, Bill Prady and Steven Molaro have also made their contribution to the development of future science.
