SCHOLARSHIPS (merit-based reductions)
We have more scholarship opportunities this year!
By Scholarships we mean reductions independent of family income. We have two groups of scholarships, one for high achievement on the AMC, the other for high achievement in MathCounts. A student can have one scholarship from each group, up to a total value of full tuition.
Again, these AMC scholarships are not cumulative. You may only have one – whichever has the highest value.
There is a $250 scholarship for a perfect score of 25 on the AMC8 given in December 2009. (2 week campers would receive half this amount, and likewise for all other AMC scholarships.) There is a $125 scholarship for a score of 24 on the 2009 AMC8.
- AMC10 Scholarships
There is a $250 scholarship for a score of 135 or more on either version of the AMC10 to be given in February 2010.
There is a $250 scholarship for a score of 125 or more on either version of the AMC12 to be given in February 2010.
Each scholarship is for achievement in the 2009-10 academic year only and applies to tuition for MathPath 2010 only. A perfect score on the 2008 AMC8 was good for MathPath 09, but not MathPath 10. Likewise, the scholarship for a perfect score this year cannot be held for MathPath 2011.
MathCounts State Winners
There is a $250 scholarship (half that for 2 weeks) for each student
who wins a slot on a 2010 state or territorial team at MathCounts nationals,
that is, for each state winner.
MathCounts National Winners
There is one full scholarship of $4500 for the boy scoring highest among boys from grade 6 or 7 in the written part of the 2010 national competition. There is one full scholarship of $4500 for the girl scoring highest among girls from grade 6 or 7 in the written part of the 2010 national competition.
Also, scholarships cannot be combined with financial aid (need-based reductions). You may take one or the other, whichever lowers your tuition more.
