June 11 - July 21, 2017
The Ross Program at the Ohio State University is an intensive summer experience designed to encourage motivated pre-college students to explore mathematics. During those six weeks, students are immersed in a world of mathematical discovery.
The central goal of the Ross Program has always been to instruct bright young students in the art of mathematical thinking and to inspire them to discover for themselves that abstract ideas are valuable and important. First year participants take the basic course in number theory. For most students, this is the first time they are asked to consider entirely new questions, to develop methods that they have not seen before, and to justify every answer.
Ambitious pre-college students with interests in mathematics and science are invited to apply. First-year students range in age from 15 to 18 years old. Admission decisions are based on several criteria, including: the applicant's work on some challenging math problems; essays concerning the applicant's interests and goals; teacher recommendations; and school transcripts.
Application details are now posted.
Every year, the Ross Program application is posted by mid-January. A rolling admissions process will begin on March 1, with a final application deadline of April 1. Spaces do fill up quickly, so it’s best to apply early.
Due to the large number of excellent applicants, we recommend that you submit your application materials well in advance of the official deadline.
