To support the "Alumni Legacy Endowed Scholarship" for the Honors Summer Math Camp (HSMC)donate here

The HSMC tuition fee is $4,000 for students who can afford it, but this amount only covers 90% of the true per-student cost of conducting the program, which includes room and board, faculty and staff salaries, and program management.  We rely on the generous support of alumni, parents, and other thoughtful donors to provide mathematical opportunities to all interested students.

Research Projects

Students who have gone through the HSMC's first-year program and are returning have the opportunity to conduct original math research projects in a team that can be submitted to various contests.  The Honors Summer Math Camp has a strong record of producing award-winning research projects.  In 2009, a team from the HSMC won first place at the national level of the Siemens Competition, sharing a $100,000 college scholarship.

From 2001-2017, students' team entries have achieved the following in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science, and Technology:

  • National Finalist: 5 teams
  • Regional Finalist: 25 teams
  • Semifinalist: 73 teams

A full listing of HSMC research papers and results in the Siemens Competition is given here.

Student projects have also received awards in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, as well as publications in scholarly journals.
