Some research experience programs are fully funded by the federal government or another organization, meaning primary expenses (tuition, housing, meals, supervision) are covered by the program. Others will require students to pay their own expenses for housing, meals, and program supervision.
Costs for grant-funded programs vary, but typically students pay only for their University Admissions Application fee ($40/in-state; $60/out-of-state). For information on non-grant funded programs, please check our Summer College costs.
Additional discretionary expenses may vary by student and are not covered by the research experience program. We recommend students budget for an addition $250 in weekend meals and $200 in “fun” money.
The Rebel Research Scholars programs are highly competitive. Prospective students are encouraged to apply early. Students must meet minimum admission requirements for credit or non-credit research experiences.
*Some programs may have state or national residency requirements. Please verify your eligibility with the program coordinator at email@example.com before applying.

For United States Domestic Students:
Step 1. Fill out an inquiry form.
Please use a personal email account, not a school affiliated email address, as most servers block external emails.
Allow 3 business days to receive your account set-up email invitation.
Step 2. Finish setting up your account.
You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with steps to create your Admissions Portal through our Blackbaud MySchoolApp system. From there, you can immediately view your admissions checklist.
Step 3. Complete your application and checklist items.
Our admissions team will have assigned your program’s checklist for you to complete before the program deadline.
The application will include standard questions (e.g., contact information, academic history, current GPA, etc.) as well as instructions to complete the UM Undergraduate application.
You will need to submit a current official transcript and school approval to determine admissibility to the program. To avoid admission delays, we recommend uploading these two documents within 5 days of creating an account.
Step 4. Await admission results, and complete pre-arrival checklist.
We will notify admissions between 2-4 weeks after all checklist steps are complete. After admission, you can complete your pre-arrival documentation.
The Rebel Research Scholars program consists of various research opportunities for high school students led by research faculty at the University of Mississippi.
