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.

2017 Application Open. Regeneron STS implemented a new application this year using Fluid Review, an application system owned by Survey Monkey and also used by our Broadcom MASTERS competition.  We believe this will improve ease of use for applicants and recommenders.  Essay questions, questions about the research project, required recommendations and transcript requirement  remain the same as the 2016 application.
