The Summer Mathematics Program for High School Students at the University of Utah provides outstanding students an opportunity to develop their talents to the fullest. By presenting intriguing puzzles, challenging problems and powerful ideas, the program stimulates curiosity, develops the intellect, and lays a strong foundation for future work in mathematics, the sciences, or science related careers.

Participants will receive three university credits in mathematics (graded credit/no credit). Participants are expected to be able to attend for the entirety of the program. Program costs for US citizens, nationals, and permanent residents are paid for by a National Science Foundation CAREER grant and the U of U Department of Mathematics.

The prerequisite for the program is that students should have progressed far enough in their mathematical studies that they are prepared to enter Calculus. Calculus is not required. Preference will be given to students between their junior and senior years. This is not a residential program. Students who live far from the university will need to make their own living arrangements for the duration of the program.

Applications are open for Summer 2023 now through June 1. The program runs June 20 through July 7, Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day (no class on July 4). There is no cost to participants for the 2023 program. Currently, our plans are to conduct the 2023 program in person, however, a remote option may be available if there is enough demand.
