IRP Application Process

Students apply to the program during their freshman year, and are evaluated on their academic accomplishments and essays that demonstrate their passion for science.
The program accepts students who are rigorous in their work, curious and highly motivated in their pursuit of completing scientific research. They must be willing and eager to dedicate 8 or more weeks of their summer to conduct authentic and novel experiments, which will be formative for their future careers as scientists.

We expect to accept approximately 2-5 rising sophomores each year. The application process will begin early spring of 9th grade. Interested students should speak with Dr. Ying.
