For Students

SWiM is a free program.

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, who are in their junior year of high school, and who are citizens or permanent residents of and reside in the US if held online. We have not decided if SWiM 2023 will be on-site or online.

*Due to regulations of online programs for minors that differ internationally, we are only able to accept students who are citizens of and reside in the US.

Apply by [Date to be announced].
