Nyasha Nyoni, Regeneron STS Finalist 2022

I believe students should apply to STS because STS is such a great opportunity to showcase your scientific research and meet like-minded, passionate students who love science!

Atreyus Bhavsar, Regeneron STS Finalist 2022

Students should apply to the Regeneron STS because it is an amazing opportunity to build community with some of the hardest-working student scientists. I encourage those to apply to the Regeneron STS while keeping in mind that you do not need to be the smartest in the room to apply, but instead the dedicated and passionate about science.

2022 STS Finalist Heloise Hoffmann

Heloise Hoffman, Regeneron STS Finalist 2022

“Not only did I gain incredible connections to cutting-edge researchers and the opportunity to meet with some of the most impactful scientists of our time, but I also made lifelong friendships with other like-minded students passionate about their work. Though STS is at its core a competition, nothing about our camaraderie felt competitive because we all felt so motivated by each other’s accomplishments and passions! I feel a renewed invigoration to follow my love for research to make a positive impact on the world, specifically in the curing of rare diseases.”

Carol Bauer, 1942 Westinghouse Science Talent Search

“At the time, majoring in engineering was a daring choice. My epxerience with the Westinghouse Science Talent Search gave me the confidence to make this decision.”

Amber Yang, 2017 Regeneron Science Talent Search

“The Science Talent Search is arguably the most reputable science competition for high schoolers in the entire world.”
