Summer Workshop in Math (SWiM2020) is a 9 day workshop for rising senior high school students who are interested in mathematics, with a particular focus on advancing female participation in math. All students currently in their junior year of high school located in the US/Canada are eligible to apply. Females and others committed to female participation in math are encouraged to apply.

SWiM2020 will take place at Duke University from June 16-26 of 2020. All participants will attend two math courses, afternoon group work, SWiM lectures given by local professors at Duke, UNC and NCSU, as well as field trips. Participants in the program learn not only about exciting mathematics, but also about discovering new arguments, and explaining insights to their peers. The participants will give a group presentation at the end of the week. All the presentations will be broadcast in live stream video. Participants will also attend useful panel discussions as well as social activities.

All participants will receive full support for meals, travel within the continental US and Canada, and accommodation. Participants will be housed in Duke campus housing (chaperoned by female undergraduates), and thus get a glimpse of life as a Duke undergraduate.
