The GGRP (Global Guided Research Program) is a unique 13-week program that provides highly capable high schoolers and university students with the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research under the guidance of world-renowned quantum faculty. The program not only empowers the next generation of quantum researchers but also offers mentors a chance to onboard these brilliant minds into their groundbreaking, application-oriented research endeavors.
Theme of the GGRP:
Quantum Computing Applications
The program is open to students from a wide-variety of STEM-oriented backgrounds and disciplines. Participants are selected based on their academic excellence, research potential, and commitment to making a global impact. The program offers the flexibility to choose between a wide variety of research projects in quantum tech, which will be offered by our global mentors.
Mentors will present a list of projects that they require researchers for, and they will be responsible for selecting researchers for the project. During the program, participants will work on their research projects in groups under the close supervision of their mentors. They will also have the opportunity to participate in workshops and talks on research methodology, covering topics such as research (duh), paper writing, summarization, storyboarding, citation formatting, etc.
At the end of the program, participants will present their research findings at an online “poster-session” and write a final research paper that will be published on arXiv. They will also receive a certificate of completion from NYUAD and QUAE/QWorld.
