Summer Research Program
The Summer Research Program is a focused 10-week initiative designed for individuals who wish to conduct academic research during the summer. This program allows participants to work closely with PhD advisors on significant research projects, culminating in a college-level research paper. It's an intensive experience, providing participants with valuable insights and skills in their chosen field of study, all conducted online for maximum convenience and flexibility.
Year-Round Research Program
Our Year-Round Research Program offers similar opportunities for academic research but with scheduling flexibility to accommodate participants’ various commitments throughout the year. Participants can engage in the same level of research and mentorship provided in the Summer Program but spread out over a timeframe that suits them, whether that's a compact 10 weeks or extended over several months. This option allows for a steady, paced approach to completing a significant research project and the accompanying college-level research paper.
Meet our Research Mentors
At Solomon Admissions, we take pride in our team of research mentors who are the cornerstone of our Research Program. Our mentors are not just highly educated, but they are also deeply passionate about fostering the academic growth of their students. With PhDs, current PhD candidacies, or postdoc statuses, they come from a diverse array of academic disciplines, ranging from the natural sciences and engineering to social sciences, business, and the humanities. Many of our mentors have a rich background in teaching at the university level, providing a well-rounded and insightful learning experience for the students. They work closely with each student, guiding them through every aspect of the research process, from topic selection to the final draft of the research paper. Their commitment to excellence and dedication to nurturing young minds make them an invaluable asset to our program.
Research Programs for High School Students and Beyond
Our High School Research Program is designed to introduce high school students to the realm of academic research. Over a 10-week period, participants work one-on-one with experienced PhD advisors to complete a college-level research project. This program is not only an excellent opportunity for students to explore their academic interests but also a valuable experience that enhances their college applications. The online format allows for flexible participation from anywhere, making it accessible to students regardless of their location.
Specialized Research Programs
For undergraduates or individuals looking into specific academic disciplines, our Research Program offers a deeper dive into areas like Medical Research, Computer Science, and Psychology. These programs provide participants with the opportunity to engage in advanced research projects under the guidance of experts in these fields. Whether you are an undergraduate student or a professional looking to expand your knowledge in a specific area, these specialized programs offer intensive research experience, mentorship, and the development of skills crucial for success in these disciplines.
Research Internship or a Research Mentor Program?
While not strictly an internship, we feel our Research Program offers very comparable benefits for the student. Research internships for high school students are valuable opportunities for gaining practical experience in academic research, much like our Research Program. Both options allow students to explore their academic interests deeply, providing a platform for hands-on learning and skill acquisition. High school research internships typically involve students working under experienced professionals, similar to how our programs pair participants with PhD advisors. In both scenarios, students engage in significant research projects, learning the ropes of data collection, analysis, and reporting. Whether through a research internship for high school students or our structured program, participants walk away with enhanced research skills, a deeper understanding of the discipline, and a notable addition to their academic or professional portfolios. These experiences are crucial for students considering careers in research-intensive fields, offering a head start in their academic journeys.
