Regeneron STS application now open

Posted on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 by for Extra Credit, Seniors, STS.

Seniors, the application for the 2018 Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS) is now open. In order to apply, you'll need to submit a research report, request recommendations from a mentor and an educator, request a high school report from a counselor, complete a series of essays about your research, and answer several questions about yourself. Instructions are available for review on multiple PDFs, but the entire application is electronic — no paper documents are needed. The application website closes on Wednesday, November 15 at 8:00 PM EST. Team projects are not allowed.

All eligible seniors should give serious consideration to this competition. Start the process as soon as possible. Summer is a good time to deal with things like this. Review the FAQs, the rules, and the application questions. Work on the research report that you will be using throughout the year. Write a first draft of the essays. Contact a person in your lab who knows you and your project and would be willing to recommend you. (This is not necessarily the head of the lab.) Regeneron STS logo Let your supervising teacher at Midwood know that you are applying so they can give you advice on the application process and begin working on their educator recommendation. Wait until October to deal with the high school report.
