High school students – do you want to dive into an area of study and explore a never-before answered question with a professor-mentor? Pioneer Academics, a public benefit corporation, created a research mentorship model for high school students in 2012. This unique model provides undergraduate-level credit-bearing research opportunities to talented, intellectually motivated high school students from around the world..

It is the only online research program for high school students that offers 28 study areas in STEM, social sciences and humanities disciplines. In the Pioneer Research Program, students work one-on-one with leading US university professors in advanced study and research of a topic of their interest, culminating in a full-length research paper. The program is conducted entirely online, allowing high school students from all over the world to participate. 1392 students from 43 countries and regions have participated in the program in the past seven years.

As part of its social mission, Pioneer Academics dedicates funds every year to need-based scholarships for students to participate in the Pioneer Research Program. These funds are restricted to cases in which the need of the student’s family can be reliably accredited. Students are eligible for these scholarships in countries where need can be assessed or if they are part of a non-profit organization or an educational institution that can assess need.

The 28 research areas include:.

Anthropology, architecture, art history, astronomy, biology, business, chemistry, communications study, computer science, culture study, economics, education, engineering, environmental studies, film studies, history, international relations, literature, mathematics, media studies, music theory, neuroscience, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, STS (Science, technology and society), and sociology
