WASHINGTON, DC – Thirteen Indian American students are among 40 finalists in the 2024 Regeneron Science Talent Search. The Society for Science said the finalists represent 36 schools across 19 states. “Finalists were selected from 300 scholars and 2,162 entrants, the largest pool of applicants since the 1960s, based on the originality and creativity of their scientific research as well as their achievement and leadership both inside and outside of the classroom,” it said in its statement.

The science and math competition is for high school seniors. They will participate in a week-long competition from March 6-13 to be held here where more than $1.8 million will be given out with the top prize of $250,000.
