Support RMP

The Research Mentorship Program (RMP) engages high-achieving high school students from all over the world in interdisciplinary, hands-on, university-level research. The program prepares students for exceptional achievement in higher education by immersing them in challenging and compelling subject matter, exposing them to the rewards of discovering new knowledge resulting directly from their hard work, and affording opportunities to interact with like-minded young students and professionals who share academic and research interests. Gifts to support the RMP Scholarship Fund ensure that this transformational experience remains available for every qualified student who wants to participate, regardless of his or her financial resources.
