WHAT IS a Young Scholar?

Participants will be assigned an exciting, hands-on project and mentored by CIAN faculty and graduate students.

CIAN aspires to create a technological revolution in internet access speeds. Students will conduct research in a cross-disciplinary setting collaborating with faculty, graduate students, research engineers, post-docs, and other students.
The program acts as a unique opportunity for high school students to be introduced to the university setting and research offered by top-tier faculty.
