Applications must be submitted via the online application form.
The 2017 HYRS Application has now closed
You cannot save the form, so you are encouraged to review the entire application before you begin. It is recommended that you type your written responses in a word processor offline, then copy the text into the form. The application requires that you:
- Write an essay demonstrating your interest in biomedical and health research
- Upload a scanned copy of your most recent report card, stamped by the high school office
- NOTE: Please ensure your uploaded transcript includes all of the necessary grades to confirm you meet the minimum eligibility criteria for HYRS. In the event your upload does not include all necessary grades (ie. Bio 20, Math 20-1 or 20-1 and Chemistry 20 or Physics 20) your application will be marked incomplete and will not be forwarded for adjudication.
- Obtain references from two science teachers (or one science and one math teacher) and one community reference (an adult who is not a relative and is from outside your school).
Important information regarding references:
The application form requires that you provide the names and email addresses of individuals who will provide references to support your application. When you submit your application, those individuals will be sent an email with the details of your application and a link to the appropriate reference form. However, we cannot guarantee that the email will be received – therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure that the reference forms are submitted before the deadline.
Before you submit your application, please ensure that the individuals you list as references have in fact agreed to provide a reference. Please also ensure that your selected references identify you by the preferred name provided in your application, this helps to ensure the reference is appropriately matched to your application. References that cannot be matched to an application will not be considered, and incomplete applications will not be eligible for adjudication.
IMPORTANT: The application deadline is March 20, 2017 for all components of the application - including Teacher and Community references. As such, we STRONGLY recommend students submit their portion of the application 1 - 2 weeks in advance of the deadline to ensure their teacher and community references have sufficient time to complete their portion of the application.
Please review your application carefully and ensure that you have met all requirements before submitting. Each candidate may submit only one application.
**Deadline to submit application and references is 11:59 p.m. MT, Monday, March 20, 2017**
