The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth and Cogito 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, or STEM, fields.
A committee composed of Johns Hopkins CTY faculty selects students who submit the most compelling, promising research proposals. Up to 10 award winners will be chosen each year.
If selected, students will receive up to $600 to buy materials to conduct their research and will be mentored by a Johns Hopkins faculty member. Winners will be announced in January.
