2021 Hank and Billye Suber Aaron Young Scholars Summer Research Institute Application (2nd year)
Parent/Guardian and student must complete the Application Form.
The Young Scholars Summer Research Institute is a three-week program that provides high school students enrolled in Durham Public Schools (DPS) with training to enhance their writing, research, and presentation skills. The program is
sponsored by the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University in partnership with Durham Public Schools (DPS). In keeping with the Samuel DuBois Cook Center’s central mission as a community of scholars engaged in the study of the causes and consequences of inequality, program participants will explore curriculum related to the
economic, social, and political dimensions of inequality and their intersections. During the Young Scholars Summer Research Institute, students will receive instruction from distinguished teachers, university professors, and leaders from community organizations. The program’s main focus is on the development of the students’ research, writing, presentation, and critical-inquiry skills, culminating in a capstone presentation of students' individual or group research projects.
