Program Dates: June 19-29, 2022 – Invited participants must be available to attend the program in its entirety on campus at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

The PROMISE Summer Program also known as Summer Enrichment in Academics in Mathematics and Science (SEAMS) is designed for students between their 8th and 9th grade years. Only students currently enrolled in the 8th grade are eligible to apply. The program is typically hosted in June. The application process is competitive and students will be asked to pay a $50 registration fee to confirm their attendance upon acceptance. Students will not be turned away by their inability to pay the participation costs. Students will be required to have a laptop and reliable internet access and they can request loaner equipment if needed to participate. Participants are expected to remain for the entire duration of the program.

Applications must be completed online and will require grade reports and evaluation forms. Students will send electronic requests for a math or science teacher evaluation and a counselor or other school representative for grade records.
