How to Apply

To be eligible to apply for Math Prize 2024, students must meet all of the following criteria:

  1. Be in 11th grade or below as of February 2024 (and not be slated to graduate from high school or to start full-time college before the contest).
  2. Be female in gender identity.
  3. Live in the United States or Canada.  If you don't live in the US or Canada, but are a US citizen or permanent resident, then you may apply, but contact us first to find out what documentation we require.
  4. In November 2023, have taken an official administration of the AMC 10 or AMC 12 exam for the 2023-2024 competition cycle.

If you meet all these criteria, then we welcome you to fill out our online application.  Please review the information in your application carefully.  We ask for your scores on the one or two AMC exams that you took.  If you aren't sure what your official AMC scores are or which exam(s) you took, please check with your AMC contest manager, usually a math teacher at your school.  All scores are verified with the MAA.  False information will be grounds for disqualification at any time.

Filling out the application form - Please read:
  • You must fill out at least one of the AMC 10/12 scores in the form.  If you have taken both the A and B offerings of the AMC 10/12 exams, fill out both the scores.  
  • Additionally, if you took an AIME exam in 2024, and/or participated in the 2023 MP4G (Math Prize for Girls) contest, please fill out the scores for those as well in the application form.  After the application deadline in June, we decide cutoffs separately for the AMC 10/12 exams and invite contestants who are above the cutoffs for any ONE of the qualifying exams.  We may also factor in separate cutoffs for the 2024 AIME exams or the 2023 MP4G exams this year so please do add them in if you have taken those exams.
  • MOST IMPORTANT - A low score in a second qualifying exam will not affect your application if you are above the cutoff in another qualifying exam.  E.g. If your AMC 12A exam is above our cutoff this year but your AMC 10B score is below our cutoff this year, you will get an invitation from us.  As we won't know what the cutoffs are for each of the qualifying exams are this year until all the applications are in, we encourage you to put all your scores on the form.

Our application deadline is May 31, 2024We will not accept any applications after this date.  By July 1, we will send you another e-mail message to let you know whether your application to take our exam has been accepted. Selection will be based on official AMC scores. We will invite the top 300 of our applicants. Unfortunately, we do not have room to invite all of our applicants.
