Administered by the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, the program is cost-free and state-funded for academically talented students who may pursue careers based in science and mathematics. The curriculum is designed to give students an exciting, challenging enrichment experience in science and mathematics. In addition to the instructional activities, students conduct independent research projects that are presented orally in an open forum. Instructors work closely with students on their projects and guide them in the preparation of their reports. The residential program brings together rising juniors and seniors for four weeks of intensive study on four campuses of the University of North Carolina system.
