Nine San Diego County Students Awarded Prestigous Science Honor

Nine San Diego County Students Awarded Prestigous Science Honor

Nine students from San Diego County were among the top 300 scholars in the Society for Science Regeneron Science Talent Search 2023, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors.

The students will be awarded $2,000 each and their schools will be awarded $2,000 for each enrolled scholar.

The Regeneron Science Talent Search scholars were selected from 1,949 applications from 627 high schools across 48 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and four other countries. Scholars were chosen based on their outstanding research, leadership skills, community involvement, commitment to academics, creativity in asking scientific questions and exceptional promise as STEM leaders demonstrated through the submission of their original, independent research projects, essays and recommendations. 

On Jan. 24, 40 of the 300 scholars will be named Regeneron Science Talent Search finalists. The finalists will then compete for more than $1.8 million in awards during a week-long competition in Washington, D.C., taking place March 9-15. 

The Regeneron Science Talent Search recognizes and empowers promising young scientists who are generating innovative solutions to solve significant global challenges through rigorous research and discoveries. It provides students with a national stage to present new ideas and challenge conventional ways of thinking.
