The Next Generation of STEM Leaders
International Science and Engineering Fair
Every year, tens of millions of students participate in science fairs around the globe but only about 1,800 earn the right to compete for nearly $5 million awards bestowed each May at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). In 2021, the competition will take place virtually in order to keep our finalists, volunteers, judges and staff safe during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Awards and Recent Results
Regeneron ISEF finalists compete for nearly $5 million in awards, prizes and scholarships. Each year more than 1,800 ninth through twelfth graders earn the right to compete at Regeneron ISEF by winning a top prize at a Society-affiliated local, regional, state or national science fair. While no awards were given at the 2020 Virtual Regeneron ISEF, finalists had the opportunity to present their abstracts.
Are you from 13 to 20 years old? Hundreds of ideas are generated in your head? And have you already started working on your own research? We have something to offer you.

Go to the finals!
Every year the best projects and their authors are collected in Kyiv. The event is always attended by scientific experts and business representatives. This is a holiday of science.
Prize - $ 75 thousand!
The winners of the national competition represent the country in the international finals in the United States. Occasions: from $ 50 to 5,000. The main prize is $ 75,000!
Competitions "Eco-Techno Ukraine" is a national stage of the International Competition Regeneron ISEF, which is held for over 60 years among schoolchildren, the best young scientists and inventors of the world to demonstrate modern research projects and exchange ideas among 70 countries.
Any teacher can become a project manager. Usually a school teacher provides general guidance, an employee of the research institute (laboratory assistant, graduate student) is responsible for research, and a scientist (candidate or doctor of science) acts as a consultant. One adult can take on several functions.
Any educational institution can become a partner of the competition. It is necessary to take into account in the educational program that the student is preparing for the competition. The design of the project should be included as part of the learning process, which will be a good help to contestants who will glorify your school!
