Course Delivery/Tech Requirement

BSM uses Zoom for online meetings. You do not need to have a Zoom account in order to participate. However, you will have to download a Zoom app to your device, in order to be able to connect to class meetings. We strongly encourage all students to have access to high quality internet and a computer with webcam and microphone.

If you are a BSM Alum, email Deb Fleming at to confirm your interest to participate. You will not need to complete a new application but you will need to submit a solution to one of the research problems listed on the webpage by the May 24th deadline.

Although we hope to welcome students back to a full program in the near future, we have made the decision to use some of our reserves to provide this opportunity to students who are passionate about mathematics and are willing to take on extra work in addition to their regular classes this fall. It is also an opportunity for our organization to continue to support our exceptional teacher-scholars in Hungary who have been affected by the closure of our tuition supported program.
