Students at the Yeshiva University High School for Boys (YUHSB) will get a chance to conduct university-level work in a variety of fields with the Senior Fellowship.
The fellowship, in its fourth year, pairs motivated high school seniors with YU professors to conduct research in fields such as economics, literature, and science.
Dr. Ed Berliner, executive director of science management, clinical professor of physics at YU, and director of the YUHSB Honors College, declared, “We wanted to make it a win-win for both the high school and YU. For YU, it is an opportunity to expose our most impressive students to the high-caliber YU education, and in terms of the students, it is a truly unique opportunity to be paired with the best and brightest professors in their fields.”
Students have been paired with YU faculty including Dr. James Kahn, Dr. Evan Resnick, Dr. Elizabeth Stewart, Rabbi Dr. Jeremy Wieder, and Dr. Raji Viswanathan, studying topics like global economics, literary theory, U.S. relations with China, literary modernism, peptide bonds and early biblical interpretation.
