   SUMMER SESSION APPLICATION GUIDELINES AND INFORMATION
             IAS/PARK CITY MATHEMATICS INSTITUTE

     http://www.admin.ias.edu/ma/2003/appguide2003.htm

  The IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute is a program of
  the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton,
  New Jersey. The annual Summer Session is organized into
  six groups:

      - Undergraduate Faculty Program
      - Mathematics Education Research Program
      - High School Teacher Program
      - Graduate Summer School
      - Undergraduate Program
      - Research Program

  These groups meet simultaneously, pursuing both individual
  courses of study and a meaningful amount of interaction.
  The rich mathematical experience combined with interaction
  among all participants results in greatly increased
  understanding and awareness of the issues confronting
  mathematics and mathematics education today.

  The Summer Session is a three week residential program held
  in Park City, Utah, from June 29 - July 19, 2003. Teachers
  are given full support and a stipend during the Summer
  Session. In addition, 6 quarter-credits of 400 - level
  mathematics are available from the University of Washington
  for a nominal fee.

  Learn more about the High School Teacher Program by viewing
  the information posted from previous years on the
  PCMI @ MathForum site:

  Deadline for submission of applications is February 15, 2003.
