WHAT ROLE DOES RESEARCH PLAY IN ADMISSIONS?

SHOWCASE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Demonstrating advanced work in a field that you’re interested in is the most effective way to distinguish yourself in an increasingly competitive admissions process. Creating novel research is the highest form of academic ability (it’s what tenured professors do!); by doing research, you showcase your ability to think critically, work independently, and apply creative problem-solving.

CONNECT WITH FUTURE ADVOCATES

Joining our community means joining a network of scholars from the world’s top institutions. The program allows you to build a personal relationship with a respected PhD researcher who can help provide mentorship and guidance in the application process, and even give testimonies to your work ethic and academic abilities.

DEVELOP AN INDEPENDENT PROJECT

In the Research Scholar Program, you build an independent research project – from defining the research question, to designing the scientific methodology, to implementing the project. This allows you to go beyond the ‘research assistant’ role many high school and college students play, where they are only executing on another person’s research question.
