NYSP inspires outstanding third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students to explore, invent, learn and think creatively.
“The National Young Scholars Program provides students with the opportunity to engage in hands-on interactive learning, while challenging them in an intellectually stimulating environment outside of the regular classroom,” said Dr. Marguerite C. Regan, dean of academic affairs for the program.
NYSP gives students the chance to unleash their full learning potential as they further their interest in specific areas of study such as architecture, forensic science and medicine. Throughout the program, young scholars engage in challenging coursework, gain a greater sense of independence and experience a renaissance of learning.
The program culminates with student-created projects tying in leadership skills learned with the discoveries made in their specific area of study.
