The Buckeye Science & Engineering Fair (BSEF) provides all Ohio’s students in grades 9-12 with an opportunity to qualify for the Regeneron International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). The ISEF is the largest and most prestigious science fair in the world. The BSEF will advance a total of six (6) student projects to the ISEF, where they will be joined by students from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and more than 75 countries, regions, and territories. ISEF students will compete for more than $4 million in scholarships and awards. 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.

Melvin Scholars are selected from the BSEF based upon the quality of their research project.

The 2024 Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at CAS, 2540 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, Ohio 43202

Regeneron ISEF 2024 will take place in Los Angeles, CA from May 11-17, 2024.
