Are you a high school junior? Consider applying to the YouResearch Fellowship in which you are matched with a professor in your area and provided an advisor as you begin the exciting research process.
The 2018 Fellowship application will open in January. In the meantime, click here to learn about the 2017 class of Fellows!
The YouResearch Fellowship is a match-and-mentorship program that connects selected high school juniors and seniors with research professors in their area of interest. In addition, each Fellow is assigned one of the YouResearch team's experienced student advisors who will work directly with the student throughout the entire research process.
Preference is given to high school juniors and seniors. However, applications from all grade levels will be considered.
Each year, the YouResearch committee carefully reviews applications and determines the high school students who are prepared for advanced research based on their academic performance, extracurricular involvement, volunteer work, and more. After the holistic review, the committee will reach out to research facilities in their area to find a laboratory suited to their interests.
