The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) is the world’s largest pre-college celebration of science. Held annually in May, the Intel ISEF brings together over 1,500 students from approximately 40 nations to compete for scholarships, tuition grants, internships, scientific field trips and the grand prize: a $50,000 college scholarship. More than 600 individual and team awards will be presented. Each entry is judged at least four times with category awards given in first, second, third and fourth place. Awards are $3,000, $1,500, $1,000 and $500 respectively in each of the 18 categories. Intel will present Best of Category Winners with a $5,000 scholarship and an Intel® CentrinoTM mobile technology-based notebook computer. Additionally, a $1,000 grant will be given to their school and the Intel ISEF Affiliated fair they represent. Additional awards worth over $1.5 million include tuition scholarships, summer internships, scientific field trips, and laboratory equipment provided by Intel, Society for Science & The Public, and nearly 70 other corporate, professional, and government sponsors. The top three winners will receive all-expense-paid trips to attend the Nobel Prize Ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden and a $50,000 scholarship.
