CIS Summer Program
As Neoscholar's signature program co-developed with the leading education innovator SixThirty Group, the CIS Summer Research Camp invites professors from top universities around the world to guide students through research projects for a summer. The research camp will offer a fully-immersive research experience, during which students will develop essential research skills and work side-by-side with the professor. For the vast majority of our students, the CIS Summer Camp represents their first-ever research experience in life.
DETAILS ABOUT THE CIS SUMMER PROGRAM
The CIS Summer Camp is a 2-4-week long program that offers in-person research experience with professors from the world’s most renowned universities. Students collaborate in research groups of five and work closely with the professor and academic instructors to accomplish research tasks.
The goal is for students to develop a research proposal, complete data collection, and work out a thesis draft, sometimes a critique paper draft. Students generally accomplish the paper 2-3 months after the program with helps from our TA’s and academic writing instructors.
The program generally runs between July and August on university campuses. It is broken down into lectures, workshops, and research discussion sessions, followed by academic instructor's sessions every weekday.
My Professor is very knowledgeable and kind. As a professor, he is easy and delightful to communicate with. He is patient enough to answer any question that we have... Lots of meaningful interactions in class. My research group and I have received great feedback and help from the professor. Thank you!

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT SUMMER OF 2022!
2022 has been yet another special year for all of us - our professors, our students, and our team at Neoscholar. After converting the entire summer program online in 2020 & 2021 due to the coronavirus, we decided to host the program partially in person in 2022, as we believe that students learn much more effectively when they study together, in person.
Due to the restrictions of international travels, most of our professors had to teach via Zoom. However, having students in classrooms together provided a much more engaging environment, where students could easily interact with peers and enjoyed a sense of community.
With the penetration of COVID-19 vaccination growing around the globe, our team is confident travel restrictions will become history, so we look forward to hosting the 2023 CIS Summer Program and welcoming students and professors to join us in person!
