Supported by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation the Young Scholars Senior Summit (YSSS) program engages JKCF scholars in high-level learning in areas of their interest. The goal of YSSS is for scholars to work on authentic research projects with mentors who are experts in their disciplines. The Renzulli Center for Creativity, Gifted Education, and Talent Development coordinates the YSSS program by facilitating scholar placement at “mentorship sites” with faculty around the UConn Storrs campus.
