Regeneron and the Science Talent Search

Beginning in 2016, Society for Science & the Public has partnered with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. on the Science Talent Search: the nation’s oldest and most highly regarded pre-college science competition.

The Regeneron Science Talent Search (Regeneron STS), a program of Society for Science & the Public (the Society) is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors.  Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse, then with Intel 1998-2016, and now with Regeneron, the Society has provided a national stage for the country’s best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
