Quotes directly from Matthew Pohl
Pioneer’s Respected Selectivity
“There are very few selective summer programs out there that emphasize research. Pioneer is one
of very few selective summer undergraduate research opportunities, and that’s something that’s
known among college admissions officers at top universities.”
Pioneer’s Leadership mindset
“I believe Pioneer’s system really prepared students for the leadership mindset.”
Credibility through academic system
“Oberlin College is considered one of the top liberal arts colleges in the U.S. If they are
partnering with an organization that provides excellent programs to students, then there’s
credibility there. Automatically.”

college-credit-bearing program in which students conduct
research one-on-one with a professor online in Pioneer’s rigorous

Accomplishment Endorsed by Pioneer
It is well known that Pioneer holds the highest academic standards. Research accomplishments
through Pioneer are trusted and respected.
Pioneer scholars earn two college credits and the Pioneer Research Program is categorized as
a college course, instead of just an extracurricular activity, on college applications.

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 very limited and their use is restricted to cases in which the need
of the students’ 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.
