RESEARCH IS ABOUT MAKING SENSE OF COMPLEXITY.

As a Lumiere research Scholar, you work 1-on-1 with a top PhD researcher to learn about the cutting edge in your field. Then, you build a research paper that you develop form start to finish.

 

WE ARE PROUD TO BE ACADEMICALLY RIGOROUS.

Our students are:

  • Curious thinkers who ask big questions

  • Passionate learners putting in dozens of hours of independent work

  • Ambitious leaders hungry to be challenged

WHY DO RESEARCH?

 

MAKE AN IMPACT ON THE WORLD

Every day, we read about research that changes our lives - from studies on vaccines, to new computational algorithms, to studies of new ways to do business. Each of these breakthroughs come from researchers working to advance their field.

GAIN EXPERTISE IN A TOPIC

The goal of research is to extend human knowledge in an area. So, when you do research, you become an expert by both learning the advances that came before you and contributing to our current knowledge.

STAND OUT FOR ADMISSIONS

Creating a research project is an effective way for you to showcase your strengths and demonstrate your abilities. Doing research can help at each stage of life – whether applying to college, grad school, or your next job.

RESEARCH DEPENDS ON MENTORSHIP.

That's why we have over 200 mentors from world class universities excited to train the next generation of researchers.
