About the Intel ISEF
The Intel® International Science and Engineering Fair® (Intel ISEF), the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, annually provides a forum for more than 1,500 high school students from about 70 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research.
The Intel ISEF is the premiere science competition in the world exclusively for students in grades 9–12. It has grown from the National Science Fair, which was created by Society for Science & the Public (then known as Science Service) in 1950. In 1958, the fair became international for the first time when Japan, Canada, and Germany joined the competition.
Today, millions of students worldwide compete each year in local and school-sponsored science fairs; the winners of these events go on to participate in Intel ISEF-affiliated regional and state fairs from which the best win the opportunity to attend the Intel ISEF. The Intel ISEF unites these top young scientific minds, showcasing their talent on an international stage, enabling them to submit their work to judging by doctoral level scientists—and providing the opportunity to compete for over $3 million in prizes and scholarships.
SSP partners with Intel—along with dozens of other corporate, academic, government and science-focused sponsors—who will provide the support and awards for the Intel ISEF 2012 to be held in Pittsburgh. We are honored that Intel has recently agreed to continue its support as the title sponsor of our Intel ISEF program through 2019.
