The Academy of Applied Science, a non-profit educational organization in Concord, New Hampshire, administers the National JSHS Program. The regional JSHS at the University of California, Irvine is co-operatively sponsored by Department of Chemistry.
All Regional JSHS students must complete all required forms and submit an electronic version of their abstract and full research paper to apply for the Regional JSHS. The Regional JSHS assembles a review panel to review students' submitted abstracts to determine those students who will present in oral competition. Approximately 40 students will be invited to present their research in oral sessions at the Regional JSHS. Students whose paper is not accepted for presentation at the Regional JSHS but was complete and met all paper format guidelines will automatically be invited to attend as a student delegate.
