Welcome to the UC Davis Young Scholars Program
2016 Program Dates: June 19 - July 30, 2016
The UC Davis Young Scholars Program is a summer residential research program designed to expose approximately 40 high achieving high school students to the world of original research in the natural sciences with emphases on the biological, environmental and agricultural sciences. To be eligible for the summer of 2016, students must be currently enrolled as sophomores or juniors in high school. UCD-YSP participation is not limited to California students. Participants in the 2016 UCD-YSP will work one-on-one with research faculty and research groups in state of the art laboratories for six weeks. Each student will work on an individual project and prepare a journal quality paper and symposium presentation about their work. In addition to scientific research, the UCD-YSP strives to introduce participants to the climate and culture of living and working on a university campus. Staff make every effort to model the experiences that participants will have during their first years of college.
