About SWiM

Summer Workshop in Math (SWiM) is a free workshop for rising high school seniors who are interested in mathematics, with a particular focus on advancing female participation in math. SWiM is particularly interested in increasing diversity in mathematics and in science and technology opportunities more broadly, so SWiM strongly encourages students to apply who are female or gender minorities. 

SWiM participants will attend two math courses, afternoon group work, lectures given by local professors at Duke, UNC, and NCSU, as well as panel discussions and social activities. Participants in the program will learn about exciting mathematics, discovering new arguments, and explaining insights to their peers.  The program concludes with a live broadcast of the presentations.

Throughout the workshop students will interact with undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty of the Department of Mathematics at Duke University. We will provide (chaperoned) on-campus housing.  All activities are fully funded.


Our past participants have shared their experiences with us on our Testimonials page.

Summer Workshop in Math was launched in 2016 by the Department of Math at Duke University.
