Youth Science Canada issues last call for students, Grades 9-12 (and Cégep), to join Team Canada at Regeneron ISEF 2023

OTTAWA, December 1, 2022 – Youth Science Canada, a national organization engaging youth through STEM projects, encourages Canadian students, Grades 9-12 (including Cégep in Quebec), to apply for one of eight spots on Team Canada-ISEF 2023. The deadline to apply is Thursday, December 15.

Regeneron ISEF is the world’s largest pre-college celebration of science that brings together over 1,800 students from more than 80 countries. In 2022, ten members of Team Canada-ISEF won nine awards, seven of which were grand awards with monetary values of $500 to $2,000.

“Being a part of Team Canada is an insightful, rewarding experience from application to selection to participation at the event,” says Prof. Patrick Whippey, chair of Team Canada’s selection panel. “Canadian students continue to succeed year after year at the Regeneron ISEF. At the 2022 competition, nine awards were received by Team Canada’s astute young Canadian scientists for their work in STEM, a wonderful achievement.”

The 2023 Regeneron ISEF will be hosted in Dallas, Texas, from May 14-19, and is a chance for students to represent their country internationally and to compete for more than $4 million in awards, scholarships, tuition grants, internships, scientific field trips and other prizes.

Students from Grades 9-12 and Cégep, who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents, can submit a project for consideration. Students can submit a continuation of their Canada-Wide Science Fair project only if they began working on it after January 1, 2022. Youth Science Canada’s selection committee will select a shortlist of candidates by January 15, 2023.

To apply, email [email protected] with your first name, last name, region and email address to be registered in the online registration system. More information on the application process is available at
