TAGT / SMI Scholarships

The Summer Mathematics Institute (SMI) is a 3-week residential program with an intense focus on mathematics. Students enroll in a single class and have the opportunity to complete one year of high school mathematics in this self-paced program. It is sponsored by the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science at the University of North Texas. Those who win this scholarship have the chance to live on a college campus and meet other gifted students who share their passion for mathematics.

Thanks to the generosity of Summer Mathematics Institute, the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT) has awarded two full scholarships to the SMI program, valued at $2,250.
