Welcome to Researchaton 2021, the world's first research proposal writing contest. We're delighted to have you participate in this event to understand our society’s most pressing challenges. We hope that through this event, you will continuously be inspired by your teammates, peers, mentors, and speakers to nurture your interest in technology, healthcare, race and sociocultural bias, and the environment.

Participation in Researchathon is free of cost and is open to college and high school students. No experience in research or the tracks is necessary to be successful in this competition. We highly encourage you to further pursue your projects past our event and to continue collaborating through our Fellowship Program!
