The Society for Science & the Public is thrilled to announce Regeneron is the new title sponsor of the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world’s largest precollege science and engineering competition, with a commitment of approximately $24 million over a five-year period.
Established in 1950, ISEF gives the world’s best and brightest young scientists a global stage to share their outstanding STEM research, and compete for nearly $5 million in awards, prizes and scholarships. Each year, over 175,000 students compete in the Society’s more than 420 affiliated high school science fairs around the world. Top winners earn the right to compete at ISEF where nearly 2,000 finalists, half of which are young female scientists, are judged in 21 different categories.
As a company founded with the goal of transforming lives through science, Regeneron’s most important social commitment is supporting and inspiring future innovators. STEM education is at the core of their corporate citizenship efforts, representing more than ninety percent of their citizenship investments.
Regeneron’s commitment comes as the Society has created a new multitiered sponsorship model to support various judging categories, events and delegations of ISEF finalists. The Society is continuing to seek additional sponsors who are similarly committed to furthering the future of science and engineering, and will be announcing our other sponsors in the coming weeks and months.
This sponsorship builds on Regeneron and the Society’s long-standing partnership to advance STEM education, including through Regeneron’s $100 million, ten-year commitment to the Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation’s most prestigious science competition for high school seniors.
