Note: The information and dates regarding these applications is specific to the year of 2018, and the 2018 Chicago Student Science Fair.  Dates and other requirements may change for the 2019 fair.

NOTE: For projects conducted in a university, hospital or research laboratory under the supervision of a Doctor, Professor or Scientist, endorsement(s) and supporting documents are due by October 12, 2017.  All other endorsements listed below must be submitted by November 17, 2017.

Endorsement requests MUST be made PRIOR to experimentation in order to ensure the safety of the test subject(s) and/or the scientist.  The project plans are reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee and, if safe, the endorsement is granted and the experiment may be carried out.  Permission to carry out an experiment CANNOT be given to one that has already been completed.
