Regeneron Science Talent Search 2022
The Regeneron Science Talent Search is the nation’s oldest science, technology and engineering competition for high school seniors, and aims to identify and connect future leaders in these fields. So much has changed for high school students this spring in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these challenges, the Class of 2021 will still have the opportunity to share research they have conducted in any year of high school.
The Regeneron Science Talent Search 2022 application will open June 1, 2021. High school seniors across the United States are invited to share their original research projects and apply to the nation’s oldest and most prestigious STEM competition, where they could win up to $250,000. 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. Every finalist receives at least $25,000. There are no limits to the number of students who can enter from any school, region or state, and students may submit research from any year of high school. The program is free.
