What is ESPR?

The European Summer Program on Rationality (ESPR) is an immersive summer workshop for mathematically talented students from around the globe with a desire to understand our world. 

We're looking for participants 16-19 years old as of August 2018.

Past participants have include International Math Olympiad gold medalists, web entrepreneurs, and student researchers. ESPR is the successor of the acclaimed EuroSPARC program, and is modeled after the SPARC summer camp.   

The curriculum includes a variety of topics. Past classes have covered topics ranging from mathematical logic, cognitive psychology, and dives into cryptography and philosophy. The learning is extended with guest speakers from a variety of cutting-edge fields.

The ultimate goal of our program is to show how rigorous, quantitative skills can be applied outside the classroom, in all pursuits.

ESPR's tuition as well as meals and lodging is free for all admitted students due to a generous grant from the Open Philanthropy Project. Need-based travel scholarships are available.
