Do you know a high school senior with a great original research project? Now is the time to encourage them to open an application to the 2018 Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious STEM competition for high school students. The online application is open now through November 15, 2017 at 8pm ET. 

The Society for Science & the Public and Regeneron are proud to award more than $3.1 million to deserving students and schools again this year, including a top prize for one student of $250,000. Three hundred entrants will be named scholars and will receive $2,000 each, and 40 finalists will be named, awarded $25,000 each, and will be invited for a week long competition in Washington, DC in March of 2018. The Regeneron Science Talent Search has recognized outstanding student research projects and identified young leaders in STEM fields for the past 77 years.

Interested students are encouraged to open an application now so that they will receive reminders and tips from the Society throughout the process. Students may work on their applications in small segments of time, saving their work as they go. To learn more about the application and eligibility requirements, please visit our application FAQ page.

The top 300 scholars will be announced on January 9, 2018 and the top 40 finalists on January 23. We encourage anyone with questions to email us at for fastest response. We are here to help you every step of the way.
