Special Awards presented to Finalists 
of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair 


Detroit, Michigan USA -- Science Service in partnership with Intel presented Special Awards this evening at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Student winners were among ninth through twelfth graders who earned the right to compete by winning top prize at a local, regional, state or national science fair. Special Awards are presented by scientific, professional and educational organizations and include scholarships, summer internships, book and equipment grants and scientific field trips.

The Intel ISEF also offered tuition grants to selected students. Colleges and universities had the unique opportunity to recruit members of their next freshman class from the most talented young scientists in the world by offering full and partial tuition scholarships.

The International Science and Engineering Fair is sponsored by Intel and has been administered by Science Service since its inception in 1950. Science Service is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the understanding and appreciation of science through publications and educational programs.
