Financial Aid 

We are committed to making our programs accessible to all students!

If you would like to register for Math Circle but are unable to pay the full tuition, we offer generous financial aid so you can pay only what you can afford.

We partner with ActivityHero to provide reduced tuition scholarships to families based on financial need. In order to be eligible for reduced tuition, families must complete an ActivityHero scholarship application and provide income verification.

If you would like to apply for a reduced tuition scholarship, please follow these steps:

  • To start, visit ActivityHero's Class Scholarship Application page, add the scholarship application to your cart, and proceed to checkout.

  • Next, after you read over the ActivityHero scholarship policies and click the "Confirm" button, you'll be directed to fill out the ActivityHero scholarship application. ActivityHero's scholarship application requires you to do the following:

    • Report your family's income and provide documentation that the ActivityHero staff can use to verify your income. This documentation (which can be uploaded electronically or mailed to ActivityHero) can be one of the following:

      • 2018 tax return

      • Free or reduced lunch qualification letter

      • Unemployment check, voucher or SSI

    • Add the Math Circle session you want to your cart. Do not check out with this session or you will be charged the full tuition price. (If the session you want is full, please join the wait list.)

    • Report the amount you are able to pay for Math Circle this semester. There are a range of options, from $20 up to $400.

  • Once you have completed and submitted your application (including providing documentation for income verification and adding the Math Circle session you want to your cart), the ActivityHero staff will review your application. This may take 1-3 business days. When it is approved, you will receive an email from ActivityHero with instructions on how to complete the registration for the session(s) you have placed in your cart.
