Young Scholars Program

“I came in just hoping to participate in research, but I got much more than that. I met a group of amazing people who are also interested in research and willing to support me along the way. I learned about complex topics not usually taught in high school. I gained connections with Northeastern faculty members, graduate students, and the other YSP members. There were definitely some frustrating times in the lab when something didn’t produce the results we wanted, but I realized that it’s all part of the process of research and that when we did finally get results, it felt amazing.”
