Project Search is designed to provide an on campus intellectually challenging experience for academically motivated high school students. The program has been in operation since 1983 and currently serves over 200 students.

Project Search's mission is to provide a forum in a college campus setting where high school students from South Eastern New Hampshire and Southern Maine can experience a series of presentations covering challenging interdisciplinary topics and interact with each other in discussion groups.

Project Search aims to:

  • foster positive attitudes toward the exploration of new and stimulating ideas through the exposure to presentations and subsequent group meetings through which hone their discussion skills
  • provide UNH graduate students with the experiential opportunity of developing group leadership and critical thinking skills for teaching intellectually curious students
  • encourage a positive spirit regarding the joy of learning through the collaboration of the high schools, their students, future teachers, and practicing educators
