Young Researchers for Social Impact

Applications to the Young Researchers for Social Impact program are currently open. If you are someone who is keen to use their analytical abilities to help find solutions to challenging social issues, then this is the program for you! At YRSI, we aim to carefully curate a cohort of 40-55 talented high-schoolers in each edition and systematically work with them to build their capacity to lead change.

Interested candidates may fill the form below to apply. Applications will be processed on a rolling basis and candidates will be informed of the admissions decision within 3-4 weeks of their candidature being filed.

If you have a strong preference for a particular edition, you are requested to indicate so in the form below. However, please note that your preference will have no bearing on your selection into the program. If you do not have a hard constraint, we request you to select “No strong preference – either edition would do”. This will make it easier for us to manage program logistics.
