What is the Eureka Program?
The Eureka Program seeks to provide high school students with the opportunity to conduct high-quality, individualized research with a university professor.
What is Our Mission?
Eureka Program's Mission is to:
Address the research interests of individual students by facilitating creative projects in collaboration with professors from top universities
Offer solid instruction on research methodologies, research etiquettes, and research ethics
Foster a community of student scholars who envision themselves as contributors to their academic field of interest
What is Our Program Rationale?
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.
Why the Eureka Program?
A Program for Students
Students do not need to start from scratch. Instead, they are provided with workshop topics that are thoughtfully designed to be innovative and practical. Students can use their summers to study a specific topic in depth, maximizing academic growth in a limited time period.
A Highly Efficient Way to Achieve Academic Growth
High-Quality and Highly Motivated Peers
The Eureka Program is open to all high school students around the world. Students are admitted based on their GPA, application essays, standardized tests, interview performance, and writing sample quality. Eureka students are very self-motivated — they have the opportunity to conduct a research project on a topic they are truly passionate about.
High-Quality Research Guidance from our Faculty
Completing independent research with one-on-one guidance from a Ph.D. or Professor from a top US University is a very valuable opportunity. Through this academically rigorous experience, students can gain a deep understanding of a specific field.
The Eureka Program places great emphasis on training students to use professional research methods. Different fields of study will utilize different research methods. For instance, students researching a topic in the social sciences may use methods that include qualitative field research, quantitative research, questionnaire design, etc. Students will receive guidance regarding their specific research method through Eureka’s professional instructors.
