About This Program

The Research Mentorship Program is a competitive, six-week summer program that engages qualified, high- achieving high school students from all over the world in interdisciplinary, hands-on, university-level research. Students will be paired up with a mentor (graduate student, postdoc, or faculty) and choose a research project from a large list of disciplines offered by the program each year.

The program focuses on personal and professional development where students can earn 8 university credits from taking two research technique courses.  In addition to gaining a deep relationship with their mentor, they will learn about research techniques, gain insight into professional research-based opportunities, and mature their academic goals. Along with these academic benefits, the students will be immersed in university life and networked with equally ambitious and curious peers.
