More Than 600 Students Participate in the 2014 NYCSEF

On Sunday, March 2, 2014, 615 NYC students arrived onto the campus of City College to participate in the 2014 New York City Science and Engineering Fair (NYCSEF), the city’s largest research competition for high school students. The 2014 competition marked the 7th year that CUNY and the NYCDOE have come together to provide students with this opportunity to display their research and hard work. Approximately 300 science and math professionals volunteered to judge at this event.


The top 155 projects (205 students) were selected to participate in the Finals Round on March 25th at the American Museum of Natural History. Seventeen students were selected to represent NYC at the International Science and Engineering Fair in May in Los Angeles, CA. This year, top prizes also included a scholarship to two CUNY colleges – The City College of New York (6 awards – each $5,000/year renewable for up to 4 years) and Hunter College (7 awards – (2) $1,000/year renewable for up to 4 years; (1) $2,000/year renewable for up to 4 years; (4) $4,000/year renewable for up to 4 years).
