Regarding the 145th anniversary of its establishment, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences has discovered the Student Institution - UchI-BAS. The aim of this institution is to enable students to express themselves and develop in grades 8 to 12, who wish to be engaged in research activity in some areas of science and/or its applications.

Each participant in UchI-BAS develops a certain topic, under the leadership of a teacher, a learned worker, a university lecturer, a student or another specialist. The most successful projects get the review of the experts, together with a project presentation call organized by the BAN Scientific Session. The authors of the highest rated projects receive awards as well as the right to hold a one-month internship at a permanent research unit at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, after confirmation by its director where they will be able to use library, laboratory, computational resources, etc. The authors of the other projects will receive a certificate of participation in the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, as well as the opportunity to participate in the academic life in the country, to deepen their research skills, communicating more closely with researchers from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and other higher education institutions in the country abroad.
