The Lumiere Research Scholar Program helps high school students work 1-1 with top PhDs on an independent research project. At the end of the program, you'll develop an independent research paper that you could use for college admissions or future studies.
Our programs help students build critical thinking and problem solving skills while demonstrating advanced work in their area of interest. Students create a college level research paper through 1-1 mentorship by a top PhD.
- High school-level familiarity with the field of choice
- Strong written and verbal communication skills in English
The application process takes place through a form and an interview. The objective of the application is to understand key details about the applicant, level of familiarity with research and interest areas.
