Yulia’s Dream is a free math enrichment and research program for exceptional high school students (grades 9-11) from Ukraine. Under this program, students would meet online once a week in small groups to study advanced math topics beyond high school curriculum or work on math research projects under the guidance of academic mentors from among MIT Math Department graduate students and MIT math majors. The instruction will be available in Ukrainian, English, and Russian.
Yulia’s Dream is an initiative under PRIMES – Program for Research in Mathematics, Engineering, and Science for High School Students at MIT. The working groups at Yulia’s Dream will operate similarly to those at PRIMES-USA, the remote section of PRIMES.
Please apply by April 12, 2022. Application must include solutions to the 2022 entrance problem set here.
You may write your solutions in Ukrainian, Russian, or English – whichever language you choose. We plan to complete admissions and start weekly meetings at the end of April. The program will work through the summer and fall of 2022, with a possible extension through the spring of 2023.
Yulia’s Dream is dedicated to the memory of Yulia Zdanovskaya, a 21-year-old Ukrainian math student and a silver medalist at the 2017 European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad who was killed by a Russian-fired missile in her home city of Kharkiv. We hope to help other Ukrainian boys and girls fulfill her dream.
With questions, please contact Yulia’s Dream program coordinator Dmytro Matvieievskyi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
