Regeneron Science Talent Search 2020

Did you know?

Southern Appalachian Science & Engineering Fair participants can also participate in the 79th Regeneron Science Talent Search 2020. The Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS) allows any interested 12th grade student in the United States (or U.S. citizen living abroad) to apply directly online. Make sure your 12th grade students submit their research to the Regeneron STS this fall, see details below.

  • The Regeneron STS 2020 application is now open! High school seniors with individual, original research projects are invited to apply online. There are no limits to the number of students who can enter from any school, region, or state. Students may submit research from any year of high school. In order to apply, students answer essay questions, submit transcripts and recommendations, answer questions about their research and upload an original research paper. The application is free of charge.
  • The top 300 scholars receive $2,000 each, and their schools also receive $2,000—that’s funding for STEM education in your community. Forty finalists will be invited to compete in the finals week competition in Washington, DC, all expenses paid. Every finalist receives at least $25,000 and if named in the top 10, could win between $40,000 and $250,000.
  • Check out last year’s highlights video, learn more about some of the finalists’ projects in this video by Veritasium, read this blog post from a former finalist, and check out the finalists’ intros from the awards gala , hosted by comedian Adam Conover.
  • The application will close on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 8pm EST, but it is encouraged for interested students to open applications soon in order to receive tips and reminders.

Adults are encouraged to open test applications and to review the updated Official Rules document for 2020 (Regeneron STS rules differ from ISEF rules). Learn more at the Regeneron STS website. Please send any questions about the Regeneron STS 2020 to
