Scholarship Description

The Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS), a program of Society for Science and the Public, is the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competition open to high school seniors. Alumni of STS have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world’s most distinguished science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and the National Medal of Science.

Each year, 300 Regeneron STS Scholars and their schools are recognized with $2,000 prizes.

40 Regeneron STS Finalists chosen from the 300 Scholars receive $25,000 (minimally) and a week in Washington, DC. In March, finalists travel to Washington, DC for the Regeneron Science Talent Institute.

On the basis of interviews with the judging panel and presentation of their research, 10 top award winners are selected, including the top winner, who is provided with a $250,000 award. Finalists who place in the top ten receive awards ranging from $40,000 for tenth place to $250,000 for first place.

Applicants must complete individual research projects to enter Regeneron STS; research conducted as part of a pre-collegiate student team project is not eligible for Regeneron STS. This includes any research or portion of research regardless of whether it has or will be submitted to any competition.
