Regeneron Selected as New Title Sponsor of Science Talent Search

Regeneron will become only the third sponsor in 75 years of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious high school science competition, committing $100 million to support the Science Talent Search and other Society programs through 2026. As part of its commitment, Regeneron is nearly doubling the overall award distribution to $3.1 million annually, increasing the top award to $250,000, and doubling the awards for the top 300 young scientists and their schools to $2,000 each. During its history, the Science Talent Search has provided more than $25 million in awards to over 8,500 students and schools. 

Regeneron is led by two alums of the Science Talent Search, Chief Executive Officer Leonard Schleifer and Chief Scientific Officer George D. Yancopoulos. Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company based in Tarrytown, New York that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, atopic dermatitis, pain and infectious diseases.

Competitions

The national science, technology, engineering, and math competition for U.S. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, the Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology, and Engineering for Rising Stars), a program of Society for Science & the Public, inspires and encourages the nation's young scientists, engineers and innovators
The Regeneron Science Talent Search (Regeneron STS), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP), is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors.  Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse, then with Intel 1998-2016 and now with Regeneron, the Society has provided a national stage for the country's best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP), is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. More than 1,700 high school students from over 70 countries, regions, and territories get the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for more than $5 million in prizes.
