Even though academia intrigues every young adult today it remains extremely exclusive. This underlying gap leaves all young students, who are interested in the field, deprived of any relevant skills or resources.

To change the current scenario of the persisting lack of training and resources for students, Project uP, aims to break popular stereotypes and make academia inclusive for people from all backgrounds regardless of their age, gender, educational qualifications or economic background. 

The Research Bootcamp, a 15-day long training program, aims to equip the students with precise tools and working knowledge of academic research, from ideation to analyses and from paper presentation to publication in renowned journals all around the world.

This program is bound to give unparalleled, holistic exposure to the students and provide them with a chance to dive into the world of research. Some additional, material benefits of the program include ease of admissions in top universities around the globe, stronger CV and better career prospects.
