Program Description:    

*** this program has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

PRIMES-USA is year-long math research program for high school juniors and sophomores (or home schooled students of the same age) residing in the United States but outside the Greater Boston area. The students work on individual and group research projects in mathematics. Projects are mentored by MIT graduate students via teleconferencing, using software and hardware tools for online collaboration, or by local mentors chosen by PRIMES.

High school students residing in the Greater Boston area are not eligible for PRIMES-USA. They may apply to MIT PRIMES, a local research and reading program program in mathematics, computer science, and computational biology.

Students residing outside the United States are not eligible for MIT PRIMES or PRIMES-USA. To get research experience, we recommend them to join CrowdMath, a massive free online collaborative year-long research project open to all high school and college students around the world (a joint program with the Art of Problem Solving).
