CTY Cogito Research Award

The CTY Cogito Research Awards are on hiatus this year.
Please check back in Fall 2017.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) established the CTY Cogito Research Awards in 2013 to enable bright middle- and high-school students to conduct research in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Each year, a committee composed of CTY instructors selects 10 winning students (or student teams) who submit the most promising STEM research proposals. These students then receive small research grants and virtual mentorship from an instructor to complete their projects. Please note that this award does not provide an on-site internship at Johns Hopkins University.
