Scholarship Application for Capstone Research Program - Group Track

Program Duration: March until Aug/Sep 2024

We are excited to announce a new scholarship opportunity for high-performance students from low-income and medium-income backgrounds who are interested in learning and conducting scientific research and developing solutions to real-world problems in their community. The scholarship is offered by the local non-profit Children’s Innovation Center, in partnership with the City of Newark and LLH/LHM Foundation.

The scholarship will allow five teams of students to participate in the Capstone Research Program at the Children’s Innovation Center. Each team should consist of 4 to 6 students from the same high school. One of the teams must come from Newark Memorial High School, while the other four can be from any other schools, preferably from the Tri-City area.

This program will not only boost the student’s college profile, but also offer a transformative experience and build their confidence and skills to conduct in-depth scientific research and become the change-makers in their communities.
