This is a 12-week pathbreaking program designed with an aim to initiate students into meaningful research work early on in their career. Enrolled students receive 1-on-1 guidance from leading researchers at world's most prestigious universities to produce unique research papers tailored to the students’ interests and passions. Students can explore themes in disciplines like Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Economics, Computer Science, Engineering, Data Science, Psychology, Environment, International Relations, etc.
Our research mentors are world-class researchers in their fields. They are either in a selective PhD program or have recently finished their PhDs. These mentors represent the very pinnacle of academia, including Rhodes Scholars, Stanford PhDs, and researchers whose work has been cited in publications like the Economist and BBC. They all also have a passion for education and helping young scholars.
COST & TIME COMMITMENT
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.
