Welcome pen pals!
Thanks for your interest in Write a Researcher! Our program is currently FULL and we cannot accept more applications for high school participants. Please check back next year to sign up!
For current participants: Your parent/guardian will receive a permission slip to sign. The signed signed permission slip should be emailed along with the letter writing address to WriteAResearcher@gmail.com by the deadline.
You will be mailed a welcome pack (including stamps, envelopes, and a letter writing guide). In October 2022, you will be notified of your pen pal match!
Each pen pal should expect to send 3 letters and receive 3 letters in return between Nov. 2022 and May 2023. High schoolers may opt to send an additional 7th letter in May. You must take a photo of your letter and email it to WriteAResearcher@gmail.com before you mail it so we can maintain an online record.
**Participating students will have their Cornell University undergraduate application fee ($80) waived!**
