AcceptU Research pairs students with mentors from top-ranked research universities. Students work 1-on-1 online with their mentors, developing and supporting independent research and building specialized, college-level skills. AcceptU Research currently has mentors available in more than 50 academic disciplines, from artificial intelligence to political science to cognitive psychology.
Guided individually by their research mentor over 10 weeks, students explore a unique research project aligned with an academic area of interest. Optionally, students can also develop, write and publish a peer-reviewed research paper – as well as subsequently earn a letter of recommendation from their research mentor for use in their future college applications.

AcceptU Build is a mentorship program designed for students interested in pursuing business. The program offers four business tracks: Entrepreneurship, Marketing/PR, Nonprofit Management and Finance. Students work directly with an experienced business coach to develop and execute a business-related project. Students engaged in service-based projects also have an opportunity to earn a Presidential Volunteer Service Award.
Students select a track and then, if they do not yet have an idea, brainstorm a project that aligns with their interests. Students are then assigned a Build mentor who provides ongoing support – including up to fifteen 1-on-1 hour-long virtual meetings – to ensure the student is able to create something that is unique and jumps out on their college application.

AcceptU Intern is a virtual, project-based internship program enabling students to gain hands-on skills and professional experience in an intended area of interest. Internships are available in more than 10 fields – from data analysis and marketing to psychology and videography – and more opportunities are added regularly. The program is flexible and offered year-round, enabling students to participate during the school year or summer.
The Intern program is offered in four terms: winter, spring, summer and fall. Space is limited so we recommend contacting us as far in advance as possible to secure an internship opportunity. Students are required to submit an application, as well as a current résumé, and cover letter. If we are unable to secure an internship for you, you will receive a full refund of fees paid.
