Started in 1942 as the Westinghouse Science Talent Search, the Regeneron Science Talent Search (Regeneron STS) recognizes and empowers our nation’s most promising young scientists who are developing ideas that could solve society’s most urgent challenges. Each year, nearly 1,900 students enter the Regeneron STS, submitting original research in critically important scientific fields of study. Unique among high school competitions, the Regeneron STS focuses on identifying, inspiring, and engaging the most promising scientists among the nation’s high school seniors.
The Regeneron Science Talent Search proudly identifies future leaders in science, and awards deserving students and their schools with $3.1 million each year. The first place prize is $250,000—the largest academic prize available to a high school student in the United States. Applicants must be in their final year of high school, completing high school courses
required for college applications, must not have graduated from high school before the Regeneron STS application deadline, and must not have entered any previous STS. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
