This summer AwesomeMath will be held at Cornell University and at the University of California Santa Cruz.  It is unfortunate that Dallas will be losing such a prestigious camp, but these are two beautiful campuses which will better serve the world class students who attend from either coast.

Cornell will be the host campus from June 27th through July 17th and UCSC will play host from July 25th through August 18th.  Early registration begins January 14th and the application is available here.

Shri was assisted in this effort by Holden Lee and Marius Craciunoiu.  He also received some of his inspiration from our own Dr. Titu Andreescu while attending AwesomeMath.

Please help Shri by visiting and helping to promote his site.
