The Advantage Testing Foundation Math Prize for Girls is the largest math prize for girls in the world. Each fall at MIT, nearly 300 young female mathematicians compete in our challenging test of mathematical creativity and insight. Our goal is to promote gender equity in the STEM professions and to encourage young women with exceptional potential to become mathematical and scientific leaders.
We welcome you to fill out our online application once available in early February. Please review the information in your application carefully. We ask for your scores on the one or two AMC exams that you took. If you aren't sure what your official AMC scores are or which exam(s) you took, please check with your AMC contest manager, usually a math teacher at your school. All scores are verified with the MAA. False information will be grounds for disqualification at any time.
Our application deadline is June 1, 2022. In early July, we will send you another e-mail message to let you know whether your application to take our exam has been accepted. Selection will be based on official AMC scores. We will invite the top 300 of our applicants. Unfortunately, we do not have room to invite all of our applicants.
For the event potentially in person and located in Boston, there could be travel costs involved.
