    The Eureka Program is a research program for aspiring high school students looking to conduct college-level research with a professor from a top US university. Students will work with their mentors to complete their own individualized research projects. The Eureka Program offers over 30 different research workshops in the areas of STEM, Humanities, Social Sciences, Businesses, and Art & Film. 


    Why the Eureka Program?

    The Eureka Program is for high school students who want to complete high-quality research. The greatest challenge is the lack of direction, where to start, and where to go. The Eureka Program solves this problem by providing practical and original workshop topics, allowing high school researchers to explore their academic interests with a “map” — a clear research plan with guidance from faculty members. Providing high school students with sufficient research training and the space to express their academic interests is crucial to helping students conduct and complete high-quality research.

    Workshop Types

    The Eureka Program offers over 30 different workshops in various study areas each year. Please see the different workshop types we offer. 

    Eureka Program - Group Workshops (June - August)

    In our group workshops, a professor or Ph.D. will guide the students to complete their own individualized research projects. A maximum of six (6) students is allowed per workshop. Group workshops are broken down into two modules. In Module 1, students will meet together in group classes. In module 1 classes, students will learn more about the research area, learn the necessary research guidance, have class discussions, complete class assignments, and participate in other class activities. 

    In Module 2, students will apply what they have learned in the earlier module and start working on their own individualized research projects. Students will have regular 1-on-1 meetings with the instructor during this module as they work on their projects. Students will also need to meet regularly with a research advisor and a writing editor during this module. Students will need to submit their completed research projects and present their outcomes to the class.

    Eureka Program - 1-on-1 Research Workshops (Year-Round)*

    The Eureka Program's 1-on-1 research workshops provide students with a customized research workshop and offer more flexibility than our group workshops. Students will be matched with a professor or Ph.D. depending on the field of study. During this workshop, the instructor will provide the necessary research guidance to complete a research project. The ultimate goal of this workshop is to complete a research project, resulting in a form of written or digital work. During these meetings, instructors will provide more insight into their area of expertise, help students to understand the academic field better, help students to learn applications in the real world, and mentor the student throughout the project. 

    *Requirements for 1-on-1 Research Workshops: Applicants MUST have a specific research topic or idea in mind. The student needs to submit a descriptive research proposal with their application.
