The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) is the world’s only international science fair representing all life sciences for students. Every year, more than one million students in grades 9-12 compete in regional science fairs and nearly 500 Intel ISEF-affiliated fairs held around the world. More than 1,200 students from 40-plus countries win the chance to compete for more than $3 million in scholarships and prizes at the Intel ISEF in 14 scientific categories and a team project category. All participants attend the Intel ISEF after being selected by their local Intel ISEF-affiliated fair. The affiliated fairs are conducted at local, regional, and national levels. Each affiliated fair is permitted to send two individual project finalists and one team project to compete in the Intel ISEF.
