Funded by a special grant from the Tennessee Board of Regents, the University of Memphis will offer a summer high school Math Academy June 19-July 2 for rising 10th- and 11th-graders.

Students, chosen from Memphis City Schools, will live on campus for two weeks.  Housing, meals, and all activities will be paid for by the grant.

To be selected, students must have successfully completed Algebra I and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75.
