Applications for the 2020 Young Scholars Program (YSP) are now available! YSP at the University of Chicago offers enthusiastic and talented math students from seventh through twelfth grades an opportunity to strengthen their mathematical powers through a deep experience in mathematical thought and effort. Our intention is to broaden and enrich the students’ understanding of mathematics rather than to accelerate them through the standard high school curriculum. All components use active learning techniques and ask students to work through challenging problems with the guidance of faculty, instructors, and undergraduate counselors. For more details, and to download the application, please visit our website: http://www.math.uchicago.edu/ysp/summerschedule.html
- Open to rising 7th to 12th graders (so if you just finished 6th grade, you can apply!)
- The participation fee varies (there is a sliding scale), and there are “scholarships”
- The camp runs from Monday through Friday, July 6-31, 2020 from 9:30am-2:30pm on the UChicago campus (Fridays the day ends at noon)
- The focus this summer is number theory
UChicago YSP is one of the longest running summer math programs in Chicago! Please pass this along to anyone else that may be interested!
