Intel Science Talent Search

The Intel Science Talent Search, formerly known as the Westinghouse Science Talent Search, is one of the most prestigious scientific research competitions for high school seniors in the United States. Winners are selected on the basis of their potential as future scientists and researchers. Each year 300 students are named semifinalists and receive a $1,000 award. 40 of the semifinalists are named finalists and are invited on an all-expense-paid trip to the Science Talent Institute in Washington, DC in March, where the winners are selected. The first place finalist receives a $100,000 four-year scholarship, the second place finalist a $75,000 scholarship, and the third place finalist a $50,000 scholarship. Fourth through sixth place finalists receive $25,000 scholarships and seventh through tenth place finalists receive $20,000 scholarships. The remaining 30 finalists receive $5,000 scholarships. All finalists also receive a high performance computer. The entry deadline varies, but is typically in early to mid November.
