Each year, the Math Corps program selects 240 middle school students and over 120 high school students to participate in its summer programming. Not only does participation in the Math Corps' Summer Camp and High School Bridge Program promise 6 weeks of fun, but 7th, 8th and 9th grade students receive instruction from university faculty and enjoy a variety of learning activities led by college and high school students, under the supervision of K-12 teachers.

In both programs, high school students entering the 10th, 11th and 12th grades serve as paid Teaching Assistants (TAs) for the younger students, receiving stipends ranging from $500 to $800 based upon their previous experience as a Math Corps TA and on their level of Mathematic accomplishment.

All students accepted into the Math Corps' summer programs, regardless of age or grade level, receive:
  • a light breakfast
  • lunch every Thursday
  • school supplies
  • a calculator (in their first year of the program)
  • bus tickets, if needed
  • a Math Corps t-shirt
  • access to WSU facilities such as libraries and computer labs


A student is eligible if and only if he/she will be entering the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade in Fall 2017
  • he/she is a Detroit resident, currently enrolled in a public school (Charter schools are included.)
  • he/she is not a Detroit resident, but is currently enrolled in a public school in Detroit (DPS, EAA, or charter school).

Tuition is free for all students thanks to funding from our generous donors.
