Science Competitions

One of our most important endeavors at Regeneron is to advance the future of scientific innovation by supporting the best and brightest young minds as they pursue their careers in science research.

Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS)

The Regeneron STS is the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science and mathematics competition. Established in 1942, it recognizes the best and brightest young scientists for demonstrating exceptional scientific leadership potential. Learn more about our ten-year, $100 million commitment.

Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF)

The Regeneron ISEF is the world's largest pre-college science and engineering competition. Established in 1950, it gives the world's noteworthy young scientists a global stage to share their outstanding STEM research, and compete for nearly $5 million in awards, prizes and scholarships. Learn about our commitment of approximately $24 million over a five-year period.

Regional Science and Engineering Fairs

Regeneron is a founding supporter and title sponsor of the Westchester Science and Engineering Fair showcasing the research of 700+ students from 40 schools. Regeneron also sponsors the Greater Capitol Region Science and Engineering Fair which highlights projects from 125+ students in the area.

Our Commitment to STEM Equity Programs

We invest more than $3,100,000 in STEM equity programs to help increase access to science research education, improve the effectiveness of STEM teachers and bridge opportunity gaps among students historically underrepresented in the sciences. On a national level, we partner with the Society for Science & the Public to fund a number of outreach programs that support mentorship in science research, teacher training and resources and innovative non-profit STEM programs.
