Terms & Process
The Idea Program is intended for talented and gifted students who display interest in the humanities, the social sciences and the arts, and are enrolled in the 9th grade during the 2019 - 2020 school year.
The first stage
Registration via the website.
After beginning the registration process, you will receive an e-mail with a link to upload a photograph of yourself, and a recent school transcript.
Enter the website’s My Profile section and add the following documents:
- A photo
- A recent school transcript (only a clearly scanned transcript that includes the student’s name, the school’s name, and the school’s signature will count towards your candidacy).
- Documentation indicating a learning disability for students requesting extra time for the first admissions exam (Future Scientists Test).
We recommend that all of the above materials be gathered as early as possible, so that they can be uploaded to your profile as soon as you are prompted to via e-mail, in January.
