Application Quick Guide

The NYCSEF Quick Guide is intended to be a helping tool.  In some cases, additional forms may be required depending on the specific type of research or experimentation. The NYCSEF Rules and Guidelines closely follow those set by the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and in some cases have stricter parameters and regulations that address student research within our local setting. Keep in mind that the NYCSEF Scientific Review Committee (SRC) will review all applications to determine whether or not you are eligible to compete. You will also be notified if additional forms are needed to complete your application. All students, teachers and mentors should review the NYCSEF Rules and Guidelines before and throughout all stages of experimentation.

Specific questions or concerns should be addressed to NYCSEF Staff or the NYCSEF SRC via email at  You will need a PDF viewer like Adobe Reader to read the Rules and Guidelines forms.


To Begin the Quick Guide, please start with this question.
