The Intel Science Talent Search finalists, who represent America's most promising high school seniors with the greatest potential to solve pressing challenges in the world, will gather in Washington, in March to compete for USD 630,000 in awards with the top winner receiving USD 100,000 from the Intel Foundation.

The other three Indian-American finalists are Neel S Patel from Florida; Anirudh Prabhu (Indiana) and Neil Kamlesh (New York).

"The US needs these talented innovators to go as far and as fast as they can, solving the world's most critical challenges, imagining ? and creating - a new and better future for us all," said Wendy Hawkins, executive director of the Intel Foundation.

"Math and science are the language and tools of this innovation ? that's why Intel is so proud to invest in these students, and to advance math and science education for all students," he said.
