If you are familiar with ISEF Form 1, Form 1A, and Form 1B - Note that TCRSF is generating a TCRSF specific version of those forms this year.
ISEF Forms 1, 1A, and 1B will not be accepted except for specific unusual circumstances. You will generate the TCRSF specific versions as part of the registration process.
If you have only a research paper and are not registering a project, you will find your Form 1D in the Display Paper Instructions tab on the student home page.
For SRC pre-approval, please email your research plan before you start your experiments to email@example.com with your name,
school, and grade in school.
Either type your research plan into a Word document (see
Research Plan and Post Project Summary Instructions
) or into
TCRSF’s Research Plan Template. Save your plan as a PDF (in Word). Please see
TCRSF Combined Electronic SRC and Registration.

TCRSF Form 1D is created inside student registration.
Forms may be downloaded directly from Society for Science at
If you print forms, do NOT print forms on both sides! We must have the forms printed only on one side of each page. (No duplex printing.)
Use white paper only – Do not use colored paper. No staples. Make sure the student’s name is on each page.
Society for Science has a helpful “Overview of Forms and Dates” page available at
Each student is required to submit the abstract text electronically. Abstract documents will not be accepted.
TCRSF generates an appropriate abstract document similar to the way ISEF generates abstracts. This TCRSF generated abstract is available
for the students to print and use at the project. Remember – the abstract may be no more than 250 words for TCRSF competitions (both projects and research papers).
HOWEVER, for projects and research papers advancing to state science fair/symposium or beyond,
project abstracts are limited to 250 words and research paper abstracts are limited to 200 words.
TCRSF will accept one abstract of up to 250 words for both, but if your research paper advances,
you will need to edit the research paper abstract to a maximum of 200 words.
It is a good idea to save the text of the abstract as a Word document for easy copy-paste into our registration system.
The SRC and registration process is explained under the menu item
Forms and Rules - Electronic SRC and Registration.
