High School Workshop Application

Thank you for your interest in this year's Eric Pitman Annual Summer Workshop in Computational Science.  For this application, you will need to provide the following:

  • List of math and science courses you've taken in high school, and whatever experience you have in computing, if any.
  • Your overall GPA (grade point average)
  • A letter of recommendation from one of your math, science or programming teachers
  • A cover letter written by you describing why you want to participate in the program
  • Confirmation that you've notified your parent(s) of this application and they are aware that if selected, you'd need transportation to the UB medical campus (701 Ellicott St, Buffalo, NY 14203) for 9 days at the end of June.  The hours of the workshop are 9:30am-3:30pm Monday-Friday and students MUST be able to attend each day of the workshop.  Exact dates and more information about this year's workshop can be found here

NOTE: This workshop is restricted to students who have completed at least one year of high school, taken a year of high school algebra, and at least one high school science course - Biology, Chemistry or Physics.  Because of the topic of the projects this year, additional math and science, especially a course in Chemistry or strong familiarity with the periodic table, will be very helpful.  Students do not need a background in computing but they do need a good foundation in math and science and a willingness to learn some computing.  Deadline for applications is May 1st but will close early if spots are filled.

Ready to start?

This application can not be saved so once you start you will need to complete it.  We recommend you review all the questions before starting the application.  If you have any problems with the form, please email ccr-help@buffalo.edu
