Nearly all of the entrants work with mentors, as high school students do not have the capabilities of doing research projects entirely on their own. However, the research papers must be all in the entrants' own writing. The selection process is highly competitive, and besides the research paper, letters of recommendation, essays, test scores, and high school transcripts may be factored in the selection of finalists and winners. Each year, the top 300 applicants are announced in mid-January. In late January, the 40 finalists are informed; they compete in March in Washington, D.C., at the National Academy of Science for the top ten spots, which have scholarships ranging from $20,000 to $100,000 for the first prize winner. In addition, all finalists receive $5,000 scholarships and an Intel Centrino powered laptop.
