Lumiere Research Scholar Program
Young Scholarz is excited to announce its latest partnership with Lumiere Education. Lumiere is an organization founded by Harvard and Oxford PhDs with the aim to provide high-school students around the world the access to research opportunities with top global scholars. Through the “Lumiere Research Scholar Program”, students work 1:1 with PhD mentors from the world’s top universities on their independent research projects. For 12 weeks, students work with their mentor to explore the cutting edge in their field. Then, they build a research paper that they develop from start to finish, with their mentor providing guidance and feedback.
