The Research Mentorship Program (RMP) 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 are paired with a mentor (Professor, Post-doc or Graduate Student) and choose a research project from a list of disciplines. Students will learn and practice research techniques, gain insight into professional research based opportunities and develop a meaningful relationship with their mentor and other RMP students. In addition to the academic benefits, students will be immersed in university life and network with equally ambitious peers.
