MathPath is a mathematics summer program for students aged 11 through 14 lasting four weeks. A qualifying test is necessary to gain admission. MathPath is centered around mathematical exploration. It is generally located on a different college campus each year.
The fee is $4500, but there are merit scholarships and financial aid. For the 2011 program, financial aid can reduce the fee to $0, depending on family income. For details about financial support, see the MathPath Fees Webpage.
