Our Research Advisors

The Solomon Research Scholars Program gives high school students a chance to work one-on-one on independent research projects with a research advisor who has a PhD, is a current PhD candidate, or is a postdoc. The PhD research advisor will work with students on every aspect of the research process, including research topic selection, guidance on how to conduct the research, feedback on the research process, feedback on the outline for the research paper, and feedback on the written research paper. In addition, a technical writing editor will assist with the revision of the final draft of the student’s research paper.


Our PhD research advisors come from a wide range of academic disciplines, ranging from the natural sciences to engineering to social sciences to business to the humanities. Many of our PhD research advisors have experience teaching students in a university setting. Our PhD research advisors coordinate with the student’s college admissions consultant to help pick the best research topic to maximize college admission odds and to strengthen the student’s positioning in the college application.
