What is the Regeneron Talent Search?
The Regeneron Talent Search (previously the Intel Talent Search, and first, the Westinghouse Talent Search) provides $3.1 million in awards to high school seniors and is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors. The Regeneron Talent Search is a national stage for the country’s best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
Regeneron has committed 10 years and $100 million to the project and is dedicated to transforming lives through science. One of its most important and social commitment has been to support the development of highly engaged, well-trained and innovative young thinkers!
Regeneron Science Talent Search Entry Requirements
Over the years, the award for work in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) has made national headlines. It has also been an important indicator of America’s educational competitiveness and a barometer of national priorities. Approximately 1,800 applications are received each year from some of the nation’s best and brightest students.
The Science Talent Search is open to any student in the United States or its territories in his or her last year of secondary school. Entrants must complete a rigorous application process, including a 20-page research report documenting their independent scientific research.
Independent individual research by thousands of students is narrowed down to 300 semifinalists. Of those, 40 finalists are chosen to compete each March in Washington, D.C.
