Summer Camp Scholarships
Every summer Areteem Institute holds summer camps at universities across the US. These camps focus on advanced math problem solving skills and applications to STEM.
ZEFR is grateful for the scholarship donations made by the Math Zoom Academy (an initiative by Areteem Institute) for four years that supported students from the KIPP School to attend the prestigious Math Zoom Summer Program from 2009 to 2012. From 2013-2018, ZEFR, in partnership with Areteem Institute), offered financial aid to students who would have been otherwise unable to attend the camp.
ZEFR is again happy to offer scholarships and financial aid for academically advanced students from low income communities and school districts. Teacher recommendation required, learn more by emailing us!
