Northwestern Emerging Scholars Program
- Are you interested in math but not sure if you want to major or minor in it?
- Would you like to explore cool concepts from upper-level mathematics in a relaxed, collaborative environment?
- Would you like to build community with others with similar interests?
Then the Northwestern Emerging Scholars Program (NESP) may be a good fit for you!
NESP is all about stakes-free mathematical exploration. No grades or homework involved! Weekly sessions will be led by upper-class peers and will involve problem-solving and discussion centered on hand-picked advanced mathematical topics. There are no prerequisites, as the content you’ll explore strays far afield from the standard pre-college math curriculum. We hope the program will reveal a different face of mathematics to you!
Here are some anonymous comments from past participants on their experience with NESP.
“I felt like I could actually focus on learning math rather than competing with others on problems. I also loved that the upperclassmen would stop by the breakout rooms to help us out with problems (they're super knowledgeable!)”
“I really enjoyed being part of NESP and look forward to any future events!”
We welcome applications from all interested Northwestern undergraduates. The online application will close on Sunday September 26th at 5pm CT.
The program will meet weekly in the evening. You will have the option to attend either on Wednesdays or Thursdays. Food will be served!
