    The UC Davis Young Scholars Program is a summer residential research program designed to expose high achieving high school students to the world of original research within the fields of the biological, agricultural, environmental and natural sciences. Participants will work 1:1 with research faculty and research groups in state of the art laboratories for six weeks. 

    Each student will work on an individual project and prepare a journal quality paper and symposium presentation about their work.

    In addition to scientific research, the UC Davis Young Scholars Program strives to introduce participants to the climate and culture of living and learning on a university campus.
