The Buckeye Science & Engineering Fair (BSEF) provides all Ohio’s students in grades 9-12 with an opportunity to qualify for the International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). The ISEF is the largest and most prestigious science fair in the world. Each year over 1,700 students from more than 70 countries, regions, and territories around the world gather to compete for nearly $5,000,000 in awards and scholarships. For information, please visit Regeneron ISEF.
The BSEF is a separate fair and is not affiliated with, nor requires participation in either District Science Day or State Science Day. As an affiliated ISEF fair, the BSEF will follow the ISEF rules and form requirements.
The BSEF will be held as an online competition in 2023.
Melvin Scholars will be selected from the BSEF based upon the quality of their research project.
