The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) program team is looking to increase the number of applicants from Arizona. Intel STS, a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP) is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors. Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse and since 1998 with Intel, SSP has provided a national stage for the country's best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
What Intel STS Awards are given?
All Intel STS entrants receive a digital badge in recognition of their completion of the application. Entrants may also be awarded a Research Report and/or Student Initiative badge for their well-written college-level research report and/or their extraordinary effort and accomplishment relative to the resources available to them.

Three hundred semifinalists are awarded $1,000; with an additional $1,000 going to their high schools to support STEM education. All 40 finalists are awarded at least $7,500. They also win an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC for the Intel Science Talent Institute where they explain their research to some of the country’s top scientists and compete for the top 9 awards, ranging from $35,000 to $150,000.
