What people are saying:

"My research experience was always the #1 item on the experiences and activity sections, above all my internships. More generally, it really boosted my confidence while applying to top schools, and does so even now that I'm in college. I don't feel like I'm a total beginner and feel confident about approaching classes at Berkeley having had a little experience in the field."

- Arihant, Polygence student

"I got an internship at a Biotechnology lab. One of the main reasons I got in was because of the research proposal you helped me with! I submitted it and they were thoroughly impressed. I wanted to reach out and thank you for all your help!"

- Sanshray, Polygence student

"We’ve had great success in our students working on projects that they’ve submitted to a variety of journals, conferences, competitions, science fairs, and more. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner in Polygence to guide, mentor, and help our students demonstrate and showcase the depth of their knowledge to stand out to programs, internships, and in the college admissions process."

- William Chung, Head of College Counseling, Zenith Prep Academy
