Mentor Immersion: A Virtual Research Experience (10th-12th Grade)

PTY’s Mentor Immersion program is a unique experience offering in-depth exposure in an academic field and the potential for independent research or a culminating project to be created with expert feedback. Approximately 8-9 students are paired with a mentor and an additional teaching assistant/peer guide. Through this experience students can deepen their understanding in a field of study while making new friends with high-ability peers and conducting research or creating a project similar to practicing professionals. Each mentorship meets synchronously for 2.5 hours a week for the length of the spring program. Students complete approximately 2-4 hours of asynchronous work each week to further their knowledge. Mentorship meet in the evenings or weekends. The times of the meetings vary by mentorship and are posted with each mentorship description.

Session Dates: January 18, 2022 – May 30, 2022

Priority Application Window: noon, October 12 to midnight, November 1
