The application deadline for the 2018 JBMSHP has passed. Applications for the 2019 JBMSHP will be available in January 2019. 

 

The Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program is intended for mature and motivated students who are interested in academic careers requiring mathematics, science, or engineering-based coursework and who are typically underrepresented in those fields of study. Selected participants include first-generation college bound students and students representing diverse backgrounds from high schools throughout the State of Arizona, including rural communities and the Navajo Nation. 

Participants live on the Arizona State University (ASU) Tempe campus while enrolled in a university level mathematics course for college credit. Participants attend class six hours per day. Homework is assigned daily, quizzes are given twice a week, tests are given weekly, and students will conduct research to present at a poster symposium. Tutoring and problem solving sessions are provided in the evenings. A variety of academic presentations and activities are scheduled during each session. Tuition, room and board, textbooks, and classroom expenses will be provided.
