The Program in Algorithmic and Combinatorial Thinking is now accepting applications for Summer 2021. The application form can be found at:


The fee for each admitted student is $1500. We have some financial support available and will try our best to see that admitted students shall not be turned away due to financial constraints (justification required), so we strongly encourage anyone interested in the program to apply.
