The Official Student Application Packet is available only in this online format. Affiliated county and multi-county regional fairs have not been supplied with printed Application Packets. Please download a copy of the complete Application Packet here:
If you are only looking for one particular part of the Application, you may find it in our section on Information for Student Participants.
If your project uses human subjects, vertebrate animals, or potentially hazardous biological agents, you will need to complete a certification form. You have two choices:
It is entirely your choice which form you submit. For CSEF purposes there is no distinction.
This section applies only if your project was performed partially or entirely within a professional research environment such as a university lab, national government lab, or a laboratory in private industry. If this describes your project, you are required by Display Regulation #8 to have your supervisor at that institution complete the Professional Research Organization Support (PROS) form explaining what portion of the project was uniquely due to your efforts. Although less useful and thus discouraged, Intel ISEF Form 1C is an acceptable substitute if it has already been completed.
If this section applies to you, the PROS form is a required part of your application; a copy must be delivered to CSEF before your application will be considered complete. We recommend including that copy in the same mailing as your Signature Card and Application Fee. If this is not possible, send your Signature Card and Application Fee immediately and then send the form as soon as possible. Further, the original PROS form must be available at the project display for inspection by the judges during the Fair.
Click here for the Application, but don't proceed until you've downloaded and read through the Application Packet labeled "Download Me First!" above.
Please note that after completing the online application, you will still submit a Signature Card, App Fee payment, and possibly other documents described above through the US Mail. By filing electronically, your information will be entered into the Fair's database exactly as you type it. Further, your Project Summary will later be published on this Web site so that your judges can read it here in advance of the judging – not to mention your friends, parents, grandparents, ....
