Eligibility: * This application is for students who have never attended SPARC before; students who have attended SPARC in the past should have received a separate application. * You are welcome to apply if you are currently in high school or have not finished your first year as an undergraduate (i.e. college freshmen are eligible to apply). In general, we expect to mostly accept students who are in at least 11th grade of high school. Younger students are welcome to apply, but if you are not accepted this year, we encourage you to apply in future years. * Traditionally, we admit students with a strong background in quantitative disciplines. But, we also consider students with skills and interests in other fields, as broadening the horizons of our students is one of the aims of our program.
