Regeneron STS

Society for Science & the Public and Regeneron announced the 300 students named as Scholars in the Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation's oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors, on January 9.

Each scholar, selected from 1,818 entrants, receives a $2,000 award with an additional $2,000 going to his or her respective school, resulting in $1.2 million in total scholar awards from Regeneron. The 40 finalists chosen to compete in Washington, D.C in March will be announced on January 23.  

Last year, Regeneron became only the third sponsor of the Science Talent Search, with a 10-year, $100 million commitment.  Regeneron is a company founded with the goal of transforming lives through science and its most important and social commitment has been to support the development of highly engaged, well-trained and innovative young thinkers.
