Typically, in May all finalists in the Delaware Valley Science Council Annual Regional Science Competition attend personal interviews with area scientists.
Based upon the spring (junior year) application/questionnaire , finalists are invited to attend personal interviews in May of their junior year. The interviews are conducted between students and DVSC members and supporters, who represent scientists, engineers, educators and other professionals from the Delaware Valley. Note that the interviews in 2020 were conducted virtually due to the pandemic, and we may continue this method for convenience of all.
The interviews provide an opportunity for students and their interviewers to learn about their respective educational and professional interests, present careers, and future goals. All qualified interviewed finalists receive cash awards in recognition of their academic achievements and community service.
