The RSI summer program consists of one week of theoretical classroom work, followed by four-and-a-half weeks of high-level research under the mentorship of leading scientists, engineers, and researchers in the students' respective areas of interest. In their final week, students demonstrate their research work through written academic papers and oral presentations to their peers and a panel of judges.
RSI students are selected by CEE's committee of professional educators and RSI alumni based on high school records, personal essays, standardized test scores, teacher recommendations, research experience, potential for leadership, and honors and awards in math and science.
To date, nearly 3,000 high school students representing every U.S. state and 56 nations have experienced RSI. CEE alumni enjoy referral, networking, and enrichment activities throughout their collegiate and professional careers.
