The Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (formerly Intel ISEF), the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, provides an annual forum for more than 1,800 high school students from 70 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research as they compete for over $4 million annually. The Regeneron ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9–12.

The Regeneron ISEF is the premiere science competition in the world exclusively for students in grades 9–12. It has grown from the National Science Fair, which was created by Society for Science & the Public (then known as Science Service) in 1950. In 1958, the fair became international for the first time when Japan, Canada, and Germany joined the competition.

Interested students need to apply to participate. Please contact Ms. Raffaat Ghanem, Coordinator, at [email protected]
