For more than seven decades, the Science Talent Search, now sponsored by Regeneron, has rewarded talented high school seniors who dedicate countless hours to original research projects and write up their results in reports that resemble graduate school theses. Collectively, they have received millions of dollars in scholarships and gone on, in later years, to capture Nobel Prizes, Fields Medals, MacArthur Fellowships and numerous other accolades.
