How to Apply to Mathcamp

Mathcamp invites applications from every student aged 13 through 18 who is interested in mathematics, regardless of racial, ethnic, religious, or economic background.

Application materials for our 2019 summer program will be available starting January 15, and all applications received by the deadline (March 15, 2019) will receive equal consideration. Late applications will be considered for the waitlist only.

An application to Canada/USA Mathcamp includes the following:

  1. Basic personal and contact information.
  2. Some information about your school and your mathematics background.
  3. A brief personal essay about why you want to come to Mathcamp.
  4. Your solutions to the Mathcamp 2019 Qualifying Quiz.
  5. Two recommendation letters: one academic, one personal.
  6. (Optional) A scholarship application, if you require financial assistance to attend Mathcamp.

There is no application fee.

We do not require transcripts, nor do we require standardized test scores; instead, we ask students to report their mathematical experience, both inside and outside the classroom. We expect applicants to have completed Precalculus, either in school or by studying the equivalent material independently.
