Camp 2021 will run virtually JUNE 21-July 2, MON to FRI from 9AM to 12PM. We will also hold optional public webinars on Saturdays throughout the summer for events such as interviewing women mathematicians (dates TBD). For full consideration apply by the April 18th deadline. Applications received after April 18th will be reviewed on a rolling basis as space allows.
We ask that the application is filled out by the campers, with particular attention to the “interest and about me” video, which will be considered when acceptance decisions are made.
NOTE ON THE APPLICATION PROCESS:
Some years we have had more interested students than we can accommodate. All students who apply by the deadline will be considered equally, and if there are more applicants than spots, some applicants will be put on a wait list. There may be space available after the deadline, and applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis as space allows.
WHO CAN APPLY?
This camp is for rising 9th-12th graders in the Triangle area who identify as girls or gender nonconforming. No overnight accommodations will be provided, so applicants must live within 40 miles of UNC-Chapel Hill campus.
I LIKE MATH, BUT IT’S NOT MY STRONGEST SUBJECT. SHOULD I STILL APPLY?
Yes! This camp is for students who are curious about mathematics and want to explore more advanced math topics in a fun, supportive environment. Anyone who enjoys math or wants to learn more about the different types of mathematics that exist beyond the high school curriculum is encouraged to apply!
WHAT DOES THE APPLICATION ASK FOR?
We do NOT ask for grades, GPA, letters of recommendation, etc…
The application consists almost entirely of straightforward information about the camper such as contact information and recent math courses taken.
A 1-2 minute video is required describing why you are interested in attending Girls Talk Math and telling us about yourself. This video needs to be done by the camper and will be the primary consideration when selecting attendees. Questions you can consider answering in the video:
- Why would you like to attend Girls Talk Math?
- What are your interests and hobbies?
- What was your favorite thing you learned in school last year?
- Is there anything else you want us to know when considering your application?
The video is visual confirmation that the camper them self is interested. If you have concerns about doing a video, please email us to discuss. DO NOT email us the video!
HOW LONG WILL THE APPLICATION TAKE TO COMPLETE?
The application without the long form answers should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
